Guys, who does what for the goblet squat?
Do you do them?
How heavy, how much?
The recommendation is: 3-5x3-5 with the weight we are swinging, and treat it as a stretch.
Does anyone go heavier? If so - why?
This I do not follow precisely. I have been corrected by Anna C and Brett Jones. Apparently I have very good range of motion. Too good. So I’m working on sitting above ATG and have scaled back the weight. Anyway though. Generalizations;
- Usually do a first set w/ 16KG and really am trying to emphasize the prying and curls. I see how I feel. If I feel sporty I’ll just go straight to using the 24 or 32 and do at least two sets of 5…but sometimes I’ll do more reps in a set too. Sometimes I’ll emphasis the curls or the prying with a heavier weight. And sometimes I’ll use a slower descent and then explosive concentric.
- I have gone as far as just replace the goblet with double front squat on occasion.
- Even when I’m not doing S&S that day. I’ve likely done at least a few sets of goblet squats, or unweighted cossacks. Or hack squats. I squat almost every day. Just not lots of sets.
