So alright, I've been doing squats with a stretch reflex (kinda like a bounce) but only went to little below parallel. Today some man told me I should not fall down so fast(i don't completely let the weight fall and hope that I come up) because when i squat more, i'll go down and not get up then break my back and shit. He said that it's the reason why powerlifter go down slowly when maxing. The dude is pretty damn strong, too.
Did 350 bench for 3 reps, 530 squat for reps (don't know how many, I didn't really look at him too much) he's probably a powerlifter.
I'm only going down quite fast because I want to minimize tension on my legs (really don't need any more hypertrophy, l32 w36 jeans won't fit my legs soon if they continue to get bigger(and I'm only 16, my upper body sucks, and I haven't done much training for my lower body except 3 months on SL 5x5 and now 2 months on madcows, so my legs are far from max potential) I'm 13-14%(judging from upper body) bodyfat so fat PROBABLY isn't the problem here, I'll try to lean down and see, maybe I hold majority of fat on my lower body.
So if not stretch reflex/going down fast, what can I do to minimize hypertrophy on legs?
