    This will be a log experimenting on the effects of heavy quarter squats on athletic performance. Initial videos will be posted within a day or two. Could use some help with periodization. Thanks.

    There's no doubt about it, and if he even really does squat, notice how he has chosen the easiest version.

    You'll do anything to avoid the basics, won't you?

    Looking forward to seeing the results of this, always skeptic over internet studies.

    Good luck.

    Did 242 for 5 sets of 6 today. This is obviously too light for quarter squats so I'll be adding 10 lbs a session until I reach a weight that actually challenges me. Not gonna lie, quarter squats are easy af to do and I don't dread doing them like i would for full squats. This may change once i get to actual working weights though.

    Not sure if there is such a thing as 'working weights' for quarter squats. You're going to wake up one day in your 40's, and wonder why you wasted all that youth.

    Anyway, great job driving traffic to your log!

    Decided to sprint, so did a bunch of 10-20 yard accelerations an hour ago.

    Seems more jump specific : POWER JERK
    Quarter Squattish thing but dynamic . . .

    Or Behind the Neck version . . . these aren't too bad to recatch on the traps.

    So the power jerk is basically a way to do quarter squats without getting laughed at...
