Squatting with Bands to Develop Power

Knowing where the shortcoming in your rep is can unlock performance that is holding your or your client back. Understanding whether you need to address the eccentric, isometric or concentric phase of your movement will allows you implement the appropriate training strategy to maximize performance and break down the wall keeping your client from their best.

  1. awesome video, would like to know what velocity/load parameter you use to best measure the rep to find out what “type” of SSC your athlete has.

    • Aaron! Here are the keys to the castle my man…I use the rep at which their peak force is produced. That demonstrates their best performance output and utilization of the SSC. If you use a load greater than where they achieve their force, you will see their slopes change in the eccentric and concentric phases indicating a SSC not being utilized fully. Tony and I have a manual coming out in a month that lays out our whole process and decision making on how to program. Hope this helps my man!

Let's have a discussion
