I put the bar on my back, and go down until my hams press on my calves.
I don't count the breaths, or don't squat in a constant tempo, but as we all know, we can only tolerate the bar digging down on our traps for a limited amount of time before we feel like we want to suddenly drop the bar and escape the agony. so I can't just stand there and breath as much as I want between each rep, I must finish 50 reps before my traps give up the patience.

Honestly I don't think about breathing at all, once I go past 25 reps, I'm breathing super deep involuntarily, and I do the next rep as soon as I can catch my breath and tighten my gut.

I don't track time for the squats, but I will do next time.
I squat in a calm and under control state of mind, maintain an steady pace, and avoid panic, but once I get past the 40th rep, I spend all the gas I have in the tank and finish those last 10 reps with maximum speed and aggressiveness to prove to myself that I own the poundage.

Yeah, school and job together,
It's autumn and more and more people get sick compared to summer, thus the pharmacy have become super busy, I almost can't get a sit ever in my worktime anymore, constantly on my feet walking around the store gathering drugs into baskets according to the prescriptions for the patients.
and since I've delayed my training my appetite have decreased too,
I must do something, even if it means deloading and building up again to battle the extra stress and tiredness of the busy autumn and winter pharmacy; or I will lose everything I've gained in a short time with this decreased appetite and no training.

Don't forget you could always do a quick 10 round circuit of pushups, pullups and squats a couple times a week just to get by. Throw a 20 pound vest on for extra points. :)

Finally found a solution which I guess fits well into my lately busy life:
Pushups (using android app "Pushups") at school
Pullups (using android app "Pullups") at school
Clean and press (once per week, focusing on low reps, medium/low volume, something like 5 progressively heavier sets of 3 or 2 reps) at home
ATG squat (once per week, 50 reps) at home

I really like these apps:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Out of the four, I just use pullups and pushups, maybe I do the bodyweight squats for better recovery and conditioning too (beside the once per week 50 reps barbell squats)
I'm not interested into situps. they just grind my sacrum.

The main reason I like these apps is because they allow me to jump right into training without the hassle of checking my last session to plan my current session.
Sometimes I just like to be told how many reps to do, and how many seconds to rest, and just rep out the training without any thinking required.

Guys, I'm training 6 days per week, I just am a lil lazy about updating my log here, since the android apps log my workouts nice and neat automatically.
But once in awhile, when I reach some worthy goal, I will update here, and will post a video too.

My training routine finally evolved into a purely bodyweight, high-rep system:

day1 = knuckle pushup + wide pullup
day2 = hindu squat
day3 = knuckle pushup + wide pullup
day4 = hindu squat
day5 = knuckle pushup + wide pullup
day6 = hindu squat
day7 = off

You might ask "But what about traps/neck and lower-back??" well, I thought about that too, but I love the simplicity of my current routine so much, that I don't care, nor believe I will lose much (if not gain) in those areas.

Good job keeping busy, Squatty.
Traps/neck can be hit by turning some of your push-ups to pike push-ups.

Training update:
I'm also doing one-armed dumbbell stiff-legged deadlifts, using a thick handled dumbbell, 42.5kg, for 5 sets of high reps, 3 times per week.
It is building some real beef in my lower back, traps, lats, and forearms.

42.5kg is the most amount of weight I'm able to load onto the dumbbell handle, so I'm unable to progress by adding weight.
Instead, I'm progressing by increasing reps, and later I will progress by changing the movement:

deadlift ==> clean ==> clean and push press ==> clean and press


When I began, deadlifting the bell felt really heavy, but now it have become light, and I feel I'm able to clean the bell, but haven't trying it yet, I will continue deadlifting the bell for a month before heading to cleaning.

Hey squatty that sounds really great!  I also find it fascinating that your training is turning you into a cow.
