What About Bottom Position Front Squats?

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

One quick note, and then we'll talk

1. Strength and Health Magazine

I'm selling duplicate and triplicate
sets of Strength and Health
magazine from my collection.

Here's a list of some of what is


It's first come, first served, so if
you want to grab a set, shoot me
an email right away.

In addition to the ones listed, we have
some other complete sets from the
1940's - so if you are interested in a
particular year, email me and ask if
we have it.

2. Bottom Position Front Squats?

Several readers have asked about
bottom position front squats.

I'm not a big fan of them.

I think it works better to do pause style
front squats.

In pause style front squats, you start
from the top position, go down to the
bottom position (all the way down, into
a full squat) - and then you pause for
a count of two - and then you drive
back up to the start position.

Do low reps - singles, doubles or triples -
and focus on staying tight and maintaining
letter perfect form.

If your back starts to round forward, stop
the set.

Ditto if your elbows drop forward.

Of course, you'll need Olympic lifting shoes
with a high heel to do these properly. You
can't maintain the right position without
OL shoes.

Hope that helps!

Yours in strength,

how much you know about training, there's
always more to learn. That's one of the
things that makes it so much fun."
