Im currently getting to the end of a volume block(German VT) in two weeks and hadn't touched a squat weight over 315 in a good month. I throw in half squats (usually with bands) in from time to time and kind of use them as a functional over load similar to the slingshot. The problem is I'm not sure this is the most efficient way to utilize this movement. At the end of gvt im gettin on kortes 3x3 again and I'm just looking to throw in some half squats leading up to getting back in wraps for the first time in quite a while.
Does anyone even do these anymore? If so how do you implement them in your trianing?
Note: I do the half squats with my heels touching and beltless just to kind of illustrate that it's not used as a direct squat movement. More or less just a way to really feel out some weight and learn to be explosive with it.
