Thread: 1/2 Squat or parallel?

  1. #1

    1/2 Squat or parallel?

    Charlie, in the strength training portion of the CFTS you refer to 1/2 squats in examples of 5 of your sprinters. Is the 1/2 squat the same as going parrallel? Do you still believe it is an appropriate depth? Are there any other changes of note as I am not quite sure when the CFTS was written?
    It is a great purchase and great read!

    I cant remember if he considers half squat hamstrings or quads parallel....i think its hamstring as charlie said before he used the half squats not because they provide a distrinct advantage but because Ben had suffered a knee injury, you best bet would be full squats and box squats with bands....

    Ben did quarter squats after he was injured. Half squats were the norm.
