How can I improve my performance in the bottom few inches of coming up out of an "ass-to-the-grass" squat? The miniscule weight I can get up off the bottom really seems to limit the value I get out of the rest of the motion.
Should I just do thighs-parallel-to-the-floor squats and add some exercises (straight-leg deadlifts, or ham curls or ???) to get stronger in the bottom of the squat? - then go deeper after I get stronger?
If so, what should I add?
