Video courtesy of Catalyst Athletics. Third rendition of good ol’ fashioned Back Squats this cycle.  Sets go up to 5 this time but reps drop to 3, so go heavier than you did in the 3X5 and 5X5 weeks!  Focus on good form, staying stable throughout the movement, and getting the hips below the knees at the bottom.  Try NOT looking at the ground when doing the Squat.  Couple of reasons.  First, the ground isn’t going anywhere, so stop looking at it.  When you look down, the body follows the eyes.  If you are in a forward leaning position, your knees and low back will suffer.  Second, we want to mimic the catch position for a Clean or a Snatch, with torso upright at the bottom of the squat.  If we go for a heavy Clean or Snatch and we’re leaning forward, we either will lose the lift or run the risk of injuring ourselves
