30 Days of Squat! (Day 19) - "They need to let the weight become part of them"

"So if it's a squatter, they're going to take it out. I'll be in the back or behind them, whatever, saying 'Hold. Hold. Hold. Hold. Hold.' Because with the bigger weights when they take it out they basically need to let that weight sit on them. I watch the barbell and I want to see the barbell compress them... It's almost zen-like. They need to let the weight become part of them. The weight has to come into them. Otherwise all they're doing is holding the weight off of them which is a waste of energy. It has to settle in."
