Hey guys, here is Wednesday's speed squat workout. Use speed work if you want to improve explosiveness and/or technique in a specific lift. I am preparing for a powerlifting meet so improving speed in the squat, bench and deadlift is a must!
This session was short and sweet as I train 6 days a week and like to keep each session brief but intense. If you need to increase your core strength, and you probably do, that shovel lift is a great drill to build it.
I often do the shovel lift in a squatting motion and keep the bar parallel, but the video below shows a really effective version as well.
