I’m looking to get some lifting shoes for my wife for Xmas. She has a bunch of shoes, all specialized for running, lifting, etc. Right now for squats & deads, she uses chucks, but is limited due to hip mobility issues, so I’m thinking an actual lifting shoe may really help her out.
The way she trains usually is she hits a big lift for the day (squats, sumo deads, bench, etc), and typically follows up with a “metcon” style circuit for assistance work, which could look like:
5 rounds of: 10 Goblet squats --> 10 lunges --> 10 Kb swings/tire flips.
Question I’m really leaning towards the metcon 3s based on her style of training. But I’m wondering how squatting in Metcons (1/2/3) compare to squatting in oly shoes (romaleos for instance). & on the other side of the coin, how well do oly shoes work for circuit training where both stability and ployometric, lateral, & sprinting movement is required?
