Ever since i read “Power; A Scientific Approach” years ago, I’ve been interested in CAT. However, in the squat you have to decelerate near the top, largely negating the CAT premise. Bands seem to be awkward (maybe due to setting them up poorly). So why not just maximally accelerate from the bottom of squat motion until the bar is locked out overhead?
With a little experimentation i’ve found that my BTN thruster 1RM to be ~80% of my best olympic style squat. That being the case, it would seem that 3-5RM loads (for me) would be appropriate for power development. Am I missing something?
