What's the name of this lift?

  1. What's the name of this lift?


    Since I started lifting heavy I've used the power rack to do what I guess could be called rack presses not sure.


    I use this for breaking barriers in squats.

    I set the rack so when I get under the BB my legs will be at a 90 degree angle. From there I just load weight until I can only about 1 max rep. Then when I go to free squat I can always usually go heavier than normal.

    This has always worked well for me when I get stuck at a certain weight. Just didn't know if there was a name for this. (some dude asked me in the gym so this is why I ask all of you vets)

  3. Its more of a pressing motion I guess with the legs. And maybe its not a power rack but more of a cage you can squat in or whatever.

    I know some1 knows what the heck this is called.

  4. Safety squat or pin squat. I use them immediately prior to full squats - like you say, they really get you warmed up well. I prefer to come to a dead stop and reset my form between each rep for these, then explode the weight upward off the pins as fast as possible.

  5. Similar idea as a box squat I guess. I don't think there is a name for it though. Resolve hit it with Pin Squat I would say.

    Yeah, that's just what I've been told they're called. Similar to a box, but the load gets lifted when you're in the hole - I use it to warm-up, but I'd imagine it'd be good for a sticking point too.

  7. Yeah there basically a way for me to warm up at a very heavy weight then my work load doesn't seem as hard.
