We are over half way though of our Front Squat Strength Program and your coaches have been very impressed with everyone’s improvements. Here are some characteristics of a great pause squat.
1. Keeping the bar at the highest point possible throughout the entire squat.
2. Staying in a strong active paused position, not collapsed.
3. Driving back up bar first and not letting the hips rise before the shoulders.
4. Bracing the core throughout the entire repetition.
