Games athlete Heather Bergeron doing Pause Squats.  Keep tension on the legs through the whole movement.  Once you get to the bottom, do not relax.  Hold tight (DO NOT BOUNCE!), count to 3, then explode through the hips to the top!  The purpose of the pause squat is to help in generating explosiveness in the squat.  This will not only help when doing regular squats, but also in the bottom of a full clean, bottom of a snatch, bottom of an overhead squat, ect…  By learning how to maintain tension and torque on the legs while under a load is like coiling up a spring, so when the time is right, you EXPLODE out!  Also, by keeping this tension, you also force your core to remain tight through the movement.  What is that good for?  Well, it will keep you from hurting yourself in this movement, plus a strong core means you get stronger in everything else, not just back here in TactFit, but through your day.  Who has ever reached down to pick up their keys from the coffee table and all of a sudden their back cramps up, or their side twinges?  Keep a strong core, maintain good posture through the day and you will avoid these things from happening.  See, we don’t just make you strong for the gym.  We’re making you strong for life! So, you’re welcome. 🙂

Now, am I going to sit here and tell you not to do any of those things I mentioned?  Hell No!  But I will tell you to be smart.  Know the difference between eating and inhaling.  And make sure you come in the next morning and work that extra food off! 🙂
