that's called a bench/box squat


it's called because usually there's a bench/box underneath to quick ass tap when to push up, like a guide


notice the speed on the press up is significantly faster than than his come down


it's a common lift you do for speed and explosion

Hard to tell but it looks like he cut some weight. Smart, given that he's getting up there in age.

People don't know jack. There are many ways to squat depending on the outcome that you want.

yeah this technique is specifically done to bounce out a natural prone squatting position and stimulate those fast twitch fibers

offensive lineman, 2nd basement, shooting guards aren't in an 'ass-to-grass' defensive prone position.

the range of motion is much shorter

baseball catchers, hockey goalie, the only ones I can think of who come close to full squat
