If you are anything like me then your body doesn’t respond well to heavy spinal loading through front or back squats, which leads me to performing a healthy dose of Goblet and 2KB Front Squats, which then leads me to play around with some alternative ways to load them.
Kind of like this one for a couple reasons ⬇️
🔷 Bilateral squatting is important and the movement should be consistently trained in some way, which this allows me to do
🔷 Zero spinal loading or compression, something we probably want to start limiting as we age
🔷 Bands give a unique accommodating resistance
🔷 Lower system load then but still get a training effect
🔷 Pain free – can smoke the quads without any joint pain the following days
