Could you please explain the theory behind the 5 second, first rep. squat? Would you prefer these squats be performed with a consistent tempo?
Jonathan Dunbar 2014-08-25
Just want to say I love this cycle. Dave, I'm not Greg obviously but to my understanding the 1st rep of the 5 is a 5 second decent to the bottom and explode out, then finish the set like your normal tempo.
Greg Everett 2014-08-25
Slow tempo is to help work on postural strength and control of your position, as well as learning to maintain tension in the lowest range of motion. I don't want all reps in the set to be at this tempo because it's unnecessary to get the effect and limits the weight too much.

Thanks for the responses. Greg it was helpful in maintaining tension and something I think I will include in my warm ups more often.
