    Anyone else do them?
    Any point in doing them? I get a pretty good pump doing them, even with just a plate aside.

    are you talking about holding plats on your side and doing a squat?

    Never tried it but sounds like a good work out if done right.

    Regular olympic style squats but doing only the bottom half of the movement.

    i've done 'em before... i used to do from standing-down-half-down-half-down-half-down-half-down-up, then repeat

    worked, but my knees hurt after i was done


    sidebar: also works well for dips

    I have occasionally used static squats, starting low and setting the pins so I can't go any higher than parallel, and try to hold the bar against the pins. I don't think they were worth the pain, full squats give much more noticeable results.

    yeah you're gonna get a big pump cause your upper body is cutting off the circulation from your legs....like what happens to speed skaters from being in the leaning over position

    Sort of like occlusion or so-called x-reps?
