What does the perfect squat look like?
The idea that ‘if the rabbit doesn’t run at 100% each day it get’s kill’ works if a) you’re a rabbit and b) you’re pumping enough drugs to handle the work volume/intensity and c) if injuries are an accepted cost that WILL happen.
Why not be pragmatic about it?
- Screen clients.
- Teach them movements. FIRST
- Teach them lifts. SECOND.
- THEN once clients/lifters are proficient at the lift, then you overload.
Makes sense right?
But where to start?
It all begins with screening.
Here is a rare insight into one of the courses I ran earlier in the year applying functional screening tools for trainers to effectively use the overhead squat test to aid in programming for their clients.
