One of the best ways to improve your squat is learning how to keep your back tight and to drive your back into the bar.
Anderson squats are a great way to learn this.
With Anderson Squats you squat down to pins or safeties, let the bar pause and then drive the bar back up to the squat position.
Named after the legendary Olympic weightlifter and strongman Paul Anderson, the Anderson squat begins at the bottom of the squat. By doing this, you eliminate momentum and the “bounce,” or stretch reflex that builds up, when descending into the squat.
