Push, I like the supramaximal idea. I haven’t done that but I will. Kind of like swinging a bat with weight in the batter’s box.
I have done an Anderson setup as Skid mentioned and it works. Start with a weight higher than max on pins and progressively drop the pin height week by week. I do have to watch my knees though. As Push mentioned, I feel more knee strain with a high “squat” than a full squat.[/quote]
Breaking it off pins at the bottom of a squat will also feel heavier than starting at the top and squatting the weight to that depth. Breaking the inertia is a killer. It’s kind of the same way that dead lifts fry your body; the bar is totally dead with no stored kinetic energy. I’ve done them a lot in the past and find they’ve strengthened my legs quite a bit.
