Great job today on your Front squats! The 1¼ squat (from Charles Poliquin) is great for developing strength in the bottom of the clean as well as timing and the ability to recover after a limited eccentric movement. It also emphasizes development of the VMO, which can help better stabilize the knee, particularly in female athletes. The athlete will either front or back squat to the bottom, recover to just above parallel, return to the bottom, and recover fully. These can be performed at a normal tempo or with a bounce. this is a squat variation with multiple benefits, including strength, timing, and stabilization. Squat to rock bottom, and then come back up to just above parallel. Return to the bottom of the squat and drive up to the top. Warning: these are harder than you think.
