Weekly Training Tip #3 - Eccentric Squat

Targeted Muscles: Glutes, Hamstrings, Quads, Adductors

The eccentric squat variation places a larger focus on the downward movement of the lift. This can help in training a more efficient bar path and improving overall squat mechanics. It also is a beneficial way to train to improve an athletes bracing patterns by increasing the total time the athlete has to maintain tension on the target musculature throughout the movement. Eccentric squat is suitable for all sports and is a useful teaching tool for novice lifters as well as a great training variation for advanced lifters.
