I've been adding heavy walkouts on squat day as part of my training. I like them and see the value in them.
Additionally, with weight I can bear but not squat, I've been doing 'almost quarter squats', just lowering the weight from the rack to the lowest hook in the squat rack (maybe 8"-10"), reset, and move it back up--- just to start priming my body for the weight.
I guess my question does anyone do or has anyone done just squat negatives-- ie bearing the weight down to the bottom of the squat (without the upward portion)?
In my case, the bottom of the rack is only a couple inches lower than just below parallel at the bottom.
Any pros/cons to this?
