    Stalling on squats - add calories or...?

    Am currently doing 3x3 squats and add 10lb every time I hit 3x5 or add 250 calories if I don’t hit 3x5 in 4 leg days (2 weeks), whichever comes first

    Is adding calories every 2 weeks of stalling too frequent? I am only at 235lb for 3x3 (6’2 180lb)

    In the short term, no. But over months, you can do the math and see that it will be too much at some point.

    Have you considered adjusting your programming to something periodized?

    This is how I have broken thru anything that resembled a stall.
    1- eat more
    2- pyramid up after your opening set
    3- pyramid starting with a higher rep range
    4- more volume from more sets.
