    Why? Because learning to manage reasonable discomfort in a safe training environment is vitally important. That’s why.

    Back squat:

    5 x 3 @ 60-70% of 2RM, each with a full 2/1000 pause @ bottom
    2 x 5 @ 75% (no pause)
    1 x 15 @ 50% (broken into 3 x 5 or 10 + 5 as needed)

    Rest as needed between sets. If sets require interruption, make as minor an adjustment as needed and complete the next uninterrupted. When scheme is listed as “5 x 3″, it always refers to “Sets” x “Reps”. Reminder: Position and range of motion always govern weight- especially true in any lift that requires an organized pause.

    Mind your posture, don’t soften up, and work hard- it doesn’t have to be fast, but it shouldn’t be lazy.
