Get Down... Fast


Lucas at proper depth?

Why go to proper depth, and what is proper depth?  In competitive scenarios standards are basically arbitrary, but are set in order to accurately compare each athlete's performance.  Proper depth for a workout is typically as deep as you can safely perform the movement given your personal flexibility, strength, skill, etc..  Why?  The deeper you can get, the further you can move the load, hence do more work, and if done in the same amount of time generate more power.  Also, working greater range of motion builds strength at the limits of your flexibility which can be invaluable in real world situations. So if proper depth causes you to slow down should you execute proper depth or continue to move fast?  Yes.
