Default Super Squats for Intermediate?

Hey, I've been working out on and off for a few years now and have tried a few routines from GVT to the mass building/bulking routine on this site and was interested in trying out this routine called supersquats. It's basically a full body workout a couple of times a week and is centred around one huge set off rest-pause squats and a couple other exercises like bench and pullups. I was just wondering if you guys think this routine will work well for someone who has been working out for a while already or if this is just a beginners routine. Thanks for any advice.
James.

there really isn't 'beginner' routines or 'advanced' routines. What works, works.

if it works for a beginner, it will work for an advanced athlete, as well.

full body workouts are the best imo. however it will depend on you. you should try it and if you see results stick to it. what may work for us, may not work for you.

however that program does seem enjoyable :P...well everything centered around squats are enjoyable!

I think that's true 99% of the time, but there are certain workouts that are specifically for beginners and specifcally for advanced trainees.

For example, a high rep, low weight, low intensity, low to moderate volume routine is typical for a true beginner looking to acclimate their muscles and recovery system to the stress of real resistance training for the first time. On the other hand, DC is a protocol that doesn't work very well for those with less than advanced lifting numbers as the shear load is part of the key to growth in only one rest-paused set (obviously the frequency and intensity are the other main keys).

The only thing that a advanced trainee should do differently than a beginner, is do the exercise with more intensity. Not more volume, especially not more frequency. Just more intensity(sorry i had to edit that i had a brain fart). The advanced trainee should find ways to make the exercise HARDER....

So not more volume, just more volume? that's worth a quote
But yeah, the routines should stay the same, just the techniques should vary... I mean, a beginner shouldn't even attempt some of these techs or he risks injuries... But that's the best way to add intensity!
