How this works: have athletes pause for 3-4 seconds in four positions on the lower: top of squat (standing), 1/4 squat depth, 1/2 squat depth, full squat depth – quads parallel or whatever is full depth for their ROM; after last pause, recruit glutes for fast acceleration up, feet leave the floor if possible)

Rest 1-2minutes between sets if not in partners
