The question came up recently of what the rate of descent should be for a squat. Should it be fast with the body dropping into the hole or slow and controlled as you make your way down?
Priority is given to maintaining the (upright) angle of the trunk so the rate of descent should allow for the body to maintain this line of action. Move too fast and the bar might crush you. Move too slow and you’re eating up valuable gas.
