Squat Warmup & Beyond


Hi CT, was reading your latest blog post about the squat warm up, which I intend to do when I squat today. It’s different than anything I’ve seen before, but on paper makes perfect sense.

Can the same warmup be done with front squats? Frankenstein squats? (I love these as they’ve helped me feel legs when squatting again, but does the risk of an unstable load without hands on bar outweigh the benefit?)

Would it work for overhead pressing to wake up the shoulder girdle/core? Bench press?
