Tempo Back Squats (5 x 2 at 70% - 75%)
2 seconds down and 2 second hold in the bottom
This is the second week of tempo back squats. By slowing the eccentric part of the squat down we can focus on our movement pattern such as properly hinging at the hips, maintaining an upright torso, and proper tracking of the knees.
These percentages are meant to be a little light to focus on more time under tension. So don’t rush through these reps. Take the full 2 seconds to reach the bottom of each squat and then another 2 seconds in the bottom.
Scale = 2 x for singles
Cap = 10 min
