Back Squat 1RM test of Friday. Let’s get it. Here’s 5 Squat Tips for Immediate Improvement from Elite FTS.
You may have read about a “walk out.” I heard about this first from Outlaw. If you’ve never done it (I never have) today might not be the day to start, clinic but I believe the theory is sound – it makes the bar “feel lighter.”
Once you reach the 80-90% range, there take 2 minutes rest then perform a “Walkout” (simply setup like you’re going to squat, approved walk out of the rack, and hold the weight on your back for 5 seconds – DO NOT attempt to squat – belts are recommended for this movement) with 5-10% more than your projected maximal Squat. If you are projecting 400#, walk out with approximately 425#. After your “Walkout”, rest 2 minutes then begin your near maximal and maximal attempts.
