Hanging out down low

Nick | 05/11/2017 | 2

Growth happens on the edge.  If we’re ready for it, we have the most potential to improve by addressing the things we are least comfortable with.

When it comes to squats, that thing is the bottom.  So today, we’re going to pause for 2 seconds at the bottom of each rep of front squats.  Keep it active and be honest with yourself.  This will be less weight than you are used to front squatting.  Embrace it and you’ll be riding that edge.
