The STACK Exercise of the Week will help you improve your overall sports performance—including strength, speed, conditioning and flexibility. This week, we highlight the Top Half-Squat, an exercise that improves lower-body power.
The Top Half-Squat is a variation of the Squat that focuses on creating explosive power from an athletic position. Holding the bottom position allows energy to be stored before it is fully transferred in the powerful upward phase. (The chains offer variable resistance throughout the movement to increase the challenge.) Perform this exercise to increase speed and overall power when running or tackling.
