yup, but hopefully you were talking about clean to front squat, becuse a back squat would be murder to press the weight over head after finishing sets.Originally Posted by WBBIRL

Obviously he wont be doing like 225+LBS, but I've done it with 135. If he had bumper plates he could just drop the weights when he was done...
Guys, I dont have a rack and what I do is put the bar behind me, pretend like I am going to deadlift it (behind me), and just use the same posture/form as if I was doing a real squat, except that I am lowering the weight almost to the floor and then going up. Is that any good?
Only because most people don't know how to clean properly. All the more reason they should learn. If you know what you're doing, you should be able to clean *roughly* your best front squat triple. So it should be rather easy to clean a weight you intend to front squat 6+ times. Obviously Heavy, low rep work is out of the question, but it's still a good solution.Originally Posted by Rex

These are called hack squats. They emphasize the quads, but do not stress the core as top loaded squats do.Originally Posted by gains2385
If you don't like the Dig a hole idea...
Try Zercher Squats, Static Squats (with as much weight as you can get on your shoulders), Jefferson Squats (just watch your privates), Wall squats with weight, Bulgarian Squats with DBs, Single Leg Box Squats with DBs....

I did these today after my Squat routine, it was solid. They work really well, nice change every once in a while.Originally Posted by RedRoss
hey, thanks for the reply. I was looking through a M&F (talked about a mag filled with useless adds promising the world... ) and saw one of the models demonstrate a hack squat. I like it well enough...my legs hurt well enough and I feel like I accomplished SOMETHING at least on my leg day.Originally Posted by dw06wu
as you'll be using less weight, go al the way down and do it slowly, and tense at the top. that would wipe a smile off ur face - burns like hell if you hold the squeeze for 2-3 secs
Learning to clean well enough to make this plausible would be more beneficial than being able to test your 1rm. He's not competing in weightlifting, so such low rep work isn't even ideal anyway.Originally Posted by Rex
