So, there are obvious reasons not to do “ego squatting”
where you sacrifice depth as the load increases…
…decreased training effect because of limited ROM, large amounts of shear force unloaded at the knee, etc…
What about concentric only lockouts with supramaximal weight?
Since there’s no amortization loading on the knee could this be used as a good intermediate between heavy walkouts and regular squatting to depth?
So you’d do regular heavy squatting followed by a few singles of lockouts finishing with a heavy walkout.
Anyone used these in the past with heavy squatting and/or walkouts to get used to heavier loads?
