I’ve recently started Chad Waterbury’s TSP, for the squat.
On the first day, the outline of the program says to do a supramaximal squat hold with 125% of your 1RM…I’m at the point where I can successfully do it with 149% of my 1RM;
With the partial Squats, it says to use 85% of your squat 1RM…I’m at the point where I can successfully do 3x3 with 112% of my 1RM…
So I consider that when compared to my full squat, my lockout is really great.
As for the bottom part, it says to do the bottom part with 85% of your squat 1RM, I’m at the point where I can sucessfully do 4x3 with 82% of my 1RM.
My point is that I am fairly weak when it comes down to the bottom part of the movement and that I am more than enough strong when it comes down to the top part of the movement (once again I mean strong compared to my full squat 1RM as I’m not what most of you consider strong).
So my question is, should I stop doing the exercices focusing on the top part of my squat, and focus on the lagging part of the movement?
How could I fit this into a schedule with having enough rest?
I was perhaps thinking of switching those exercices by some more box squats or/and front squats or sumo-style deadlift on a platform?
Thanks a lot
