Lower Body Push Techniques
Lower Body Push Training
Techniques related to lower body pushing movements - including squats and movements to supplement the squat
These are lifts that you can use as a primary movement in a lower body 'push' session, or Squat Day
These are lifts that you can use as an accessory to your primary movement in a lower body 'push' session, or Squat Day. Program accessories to strengthen weak points in your range of motion, or address technical deficiencies.
Some accessories could also be substituted for the primary movement, depending on the specificity of the accessory, and the point in your program (how far out you are from a competition).
Assistance lifts are relatively specific to the primary, or competition lift: Similar movement patterns, muscle groups and energy systems.
Safety Squat Bar is a specialty bar that can be used to emphasize the quads and core stability, as well as really overload the weight on the bar.
As a side benefit, it allows you to do heavy back squats even when dealing with shoulder issues.
Supplemental lifts are used to address a specific weakness or muscle. They are non-specific to the primary, or competition lifts. They may work the same, or some of the same muscles, but are different movement patterns and may use different energy systems.
