Explore Squat Training With Westside Barbell

Monday, December 20, 2010

Squat training is a crucial aspect of powerlifting and there are many people who are interested in details about the squat training routine. In Westside Barbell, squat training is split up into two days-one on Monday and the other on Friday. Squat training on Monday aims to work on the muscular system with the aid of maximum effort strength training and on Friday, the purpose is to train the neuromuscular system. This is done with the help of the dynamic effort training.
