I know the Smolov, Bulgarian, and Russian athletes advocate daily squatting in order to get their numbers up a la pure strength.

They'll have a scheme where they do a few sets every day and not much else and they become accustomed to the movement, and it's not at a volume high enough to drain your CNS.
