Squatting creates fatigue though, so it will kills your hops and speed in the short term. When you want to display your full abilities, you need to cut back on the squatting and reduce the weight and volume for a few weeks to reach your peak[/quote]
i squatted 10 times in the last 12 days… and PR’d on broad jumps and running vertical jumps… 4 PR’s in all… hasn’t killed my hops at all, in fact it potentiated them to PR levels.
you can squat like YOU ARE DOING, or you can use squat as STIM… totally different issue…
you might say, “well you’re not squatting heavy!”, and i’d say: “ya i know, i squatted 1.5-1.6x BW nearly every day as a potentiation/stim tool”.
just an entirely different approach… sorry CCJ had to throw in my opposing view once again ;d
