In Response To: Partials in the squat?? (Tom Allred)
We do them a little different in our gym.
First a little history. Several years ago the great one, Walter Thomas, had a workout in which he would squat to pins in a rack. Those of us who put our hands to the ends legally allowed could not do these.
My solution is this. I loop chains from the top of our monolift, and we load the bar and squat to the bottom of the chains. I like these better than walkouts because you get the feeling of a heavier weight and going down and up with it. We wrap and everything for these, treating them like a competition lift. I set the length so that it is between 1/2 to 2/3 to parallel. My training partner used these with me to take his squat to new poundages. We use 10 to 15% more than the heaviest set that day. In other words if we did a 450, then overload would be with 495 to 525.
Now Tom, to quote my favorite philosopher and scholar, Git'er done.
