2-Sec Pause Back Squat


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of Catalyst Strength.  Our second go at the 2-Second Pause Back Squat.  As stated last time, this simple variation from traditional Back Squat focuses on strengthening us in the bottom most range of the squat. To be honest, if this area isn’t strong, failing a Back Squat becomes very easy.  So, during the pause, do NOT relax the body or let your body slump at all.  Remain tight!  Tight core, torso in a good, straight position, legs tensed and ready to explode!  With sets dropping to 3, aim to go heavier than the 5X5 week.
