The Power Squat is a contested power lift and one of the main all-round strength and power builders. The Power Squat develops the quadriceps and posterior chain as well as additional areas of the body including the abdominals.
This variation of the Squat is the one I prefer to do, I find it much easier on the joints and you can lift more weight with the Power Squat, probably because of the shorter range of motion and what feels like a more sturdier base as there is more emphasis on the hip joints and less on the knees.
