Leg Training Cues with Derek Lunsford
Squat ass to grass... is not what you'll hear from Derek Lunsford here today.
He does however give some badass cues that contradict popular training styles and what has been iterated and reiterated in countless magazine articles through the years.
Establish a connection. After I do that I add on the weight until enough to where I can still get the 12-15 reps that I am going for.
The mission is always the priority when approaching training for Derek. Here the mission is quadricep stimulation. Hip placement and ankle placement and tempo play huge roles in a lot of his lifts he performs here.
When prompted to spell out his lunge technique for quadricep emphasis Derek mentions the common "don't let your knee go past your toe" and then says for his purposes today (quads) "I actually tuck my hips in, take a shallow step and let my knee go past my toes."
