    It doesn't really matter, but your concentric is much faster than your eccentric so whatever count you're using- it's not being applied evenly.

    Your concentric on the tempo squats is far too quick, which is inflating your #.

    I would also narrow your stance a bit and bounce harder on your 'comp squat'.

    Do you have a video of both squats I could take a peek at?

    3-0-3 Tempo Squats

    Hi, I have just started the Strength 1 template and had a go at 3-0-3 tempo squats. I was wondering if I performed the exercise correctly since I use a relatively high weight compared to my competition squat. My competition squat is 92.5kg for 5 reps @ 9 while I tempo squat 76.5kg for 8 reps @ 9. A reason why I think this might be the case is because on the last few reps of the set, the tempo on the concentric phase is something that I don't need to control due to the muscle fatigue I experience, which shouldn't be the case. If you could bring some clarity on this situation that would be great.
    Thanks
Working...
