i've started to do squats again after not doing them for probably 7 years. i haven't really lifted in 4 though, so meh. definitely still incredibly weak on squats and right now, i'm just working on my form. i would definitely like to get better though at squats since it's such an essential lift.
still doing pullups and chin ups, but those are naturally easy due to my other workout (rock climbing).
overall, i'm happy with my progress. i'm definitely still improving at only 1x lifting a week. obviously i work out in other ways as well, though, so that must be noted.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. IMO, frequency is vastly overrated. Some studies show that it takes muscles 7-14 days to recover from a workout.
