    Re: Most effective type of squat

    You can add to the no-squat club MVP athletes including Asafa Powell, Fraser-Pryce, and, I believe though I have not seen videos, Elaine Thompson. Steve Francis does not believe in squats and MVP...

    Re: Sled vs Hill, which one would you choose?

    I use hills as well, but some people don't have a stable hill with the proper gradient available. For some of those, stadium steps might also be an answer as well as sleds. Other things should also...
