Heavy Back Squat

Back Squat at Galvestons CrossFit Tidal Wave km Strength Workout (SWOD) Warm Ups Sets 3 x 3 Back Squat @ 85% 1RM No exercise or machine is as effective as the Squat for getting stronger. The Leg Press is inferior because you don’t have to balance the weight. The leg extension is inferior because it only works your quads, with light weights. Deadlift is inferior because the range of motion is smaller. Squats are king, period. Plus you can easily get stronger at Squats by starting light and adding 2.5kg/5lb each workout. You can’t on a single joint exercise like a leg extension that uses less muscle. Squats are a multi-joint, compound exercise – it works more muscles which allows you to lift more, progress longer and get stronger. This strength carries-over outside the gym. If you lift a heavy object in real life, no machine balances or supports it for you. You must do it yourself. Squat force you to balance and support the weight yourself which works your body, muscles, bones and joints like you’ll use them in real life.
