The Cowboy Method


Written by

Wanna squat more? Then you’ve gotta squat more!

The Cowboy Method was born out of the Texas Method-I originally called this the Big Texas Method but The Cowboy Method is just catchier and Big Texas make me keep thinking about those cinnamon rolls you can buy in vending machines.

The premise of The Cowboy Method was born out of Glenn Pendlay’s Texas Method squat program. Pendlay’s Texas Method revolves around a 3x/week squatting program of High Volume on Mondays, Low Volume on Wednesdays and a rep max on Fridays or Saturdays, it is a great program that will yield excellent results for you.

“My squat had been stuck for several months and I knew I needed a change. The Cowboy Method has been the perfect change to help add muscle and improve my technique. I started with a 1rm of 235 and now have done that for a set of 5!”-Whitney Churchill

For many people reading this though, you need more, you need more volume, more muscle, more practice of the movements, enter The Cowboy Method. If you are a beginner/intermediate lifter, you need more VOLUME, if you are an advanced lifter, a high volume phase can help you put on muscle, give you a break from the heaviest weights and challenge you in new ways.

The Cowboy Method doesn’t just include a great plan to help improve your squat, it also has deadlift and bench training, as well as a clever and effective way to improve your MetCon work!

“My squat had been holding back my Olympic lifts and I knew I needed to change something. The Cowboy Method is challenging me every step of the way but after just 8 weeks I’m doing my old 1rm for 3 reps! All my lifts are going up and my work capacity has increased.”-Joel Thompson, Owner of CrossFit Tustin

Check out The Cowboy Method and 100% of the proceeds are going to Autism Speaks, a charity very dear to me.
