The free squat is an olympic squat all the way down with a pause to prevent a specific knee issue.
Well, I am not a powerlifter nor I want to specifically train to lift much more than 500-550 on the dead/squat AT THIS POINT… This is used (i hope, i never had them before) for RFD and speed development for athletics.
Obviously people have squatted 800 without that method But my speed levels in the sprint and VJ are on par with 800lb squatters So more of a tool for me, less a means to an end.
Xanes - no 50% usually on speed if I’m not doing BW/20% plyometrics.
So max full squat is 160kg and box squat is 220kg
Numbers may be out of sync - I don’t box squat anymore, moved to full squats strictly in an Olympic lifting program and building that up. Should be 170 ? I did do 3 with my 160kg attempt, never went higher… Not in the Oly program hehe.
That article is cool, thanks !
