Boris Sheiko- Squat with a pause

Sat, 02/17/2018 - 08:51 -- admin
Squat with a pause halfway down --- This lift uses the static-dynamic method. Some athletes slow down too much before parallel when working with weights 90% and up. That makes it hard for them to hit proper depth. Therefore, I prescribe squats with a stop halfway down. --- They should stop about 2-5s, depending on the weight of the barbell. The main condition is the lowering speed after the pause should be greater than before the pause. This helps the athletes to get used to faster movement down and, as a result, to squats below the parallel. ---
