Back Pause Squats

Chloe back squat Strength Workout (SWOD) A1. 4 x 5 Back Squats with 3 second Pause A2. 3 x 15 Banded Facepulls w/ Pull Apart Note: Pausing in the bottom position of extensor chain movements such as  front squats forbids the use of the stretch reflex, thus increases intra-muscular tension, a great way to vary the strength building stimulus. You can take a long as four seconds in the bottom position if you want to dissipate all stored elastic energy. Like any other stimulus, varying it is an added benefit. This form of work is best suited for general preparatory work. It is very valuable when training alpine skiers so their vastus medialis gets a greater overload, thus doing a better job at protecting the knees. cam back squat Workout of the Day (WOD) 10min Running Clock 30 Hang Squat Cleans (135/85) 50 Wall Balls (20/14) Max Rep Abmats in the remainder of time jene back squat]]>
