  • Alts for tempo squat

    Hey all,

    I started strength 1 for the second time and i really need an alt for the tempo squat. I've been searching and most of the things I see are just telling people to lower the weght and deal. While i dislike these i am also getting light headed by the end. I start by valsalvaing through the first few but by the end I'm breathing normally, that's how light the weight is. I know i can pause or pin squat but don't really know which to do.

    Most templates i have have variations in the exercise selection but this one does not.

    Thanks for any help.

    The light headedness has me a little worried because i dont get it on normal squats. While it's nothing new in my life it gets pretty strong doing these.

    There is no right or wrong answer here. Pick any squat variation you'd like to substitute in that slot, and see how you do. Could be a paused/pin/box squat, high bar, SSB, squat with chains/bands, or any combination of these just as an example.
