In Response To: Partials in the squat?? (Tom Allred)
"I have been training everything down to a 13 inch box, and nothing else. Last couple of weeks I have been trying partials, with more weight to try and change it up a bit. Do you guys bother wrapping on
these, even though you walk the weight out?"
That would probably depend on how heavy you went.
If I went over 600, I'd probably wrap - maybe not a contest wrap but a wrap.
" Is it down to a pin, pause like a bench partial, or do you just up and down like a normal squat? "
If you squat to a pin, I'd recommend making sure you don't bounce off the pins.
"How about just starting at the bottom instead of walking the weight out? Thanks in advance."
Those are good. Hard because you start from a dead stop. I know Priscilla does (or at least did) those and her squat is really good.I think she said Larry Maile came up with that or at least it's something he recommends. She did them from the bottom position but you could do them from anywhere you think you have a weak spot. We've done them in our training and like them though they are tough.
One variation you might try is to suspend the barbell in some chains and then crawl under and get in position. It's a bit easier to get under and in position than when the bar is on pins.
Again, if you're doing reps don't bounce off the pins or chains.
