Breakdown of Rolandas’ 10 reps max squatting technique (in the video above): this is a bodybuilding squat technique, not power lifting, depth aim is thighs parallel to floor (some reps lack the depth a little due to max weight). The movement starts with hips pushing back and knees bending. Biomechanically, hips pushed back result in upper body leaning forward, which is controlled by keeping upper back tight, shoulders retracted and chin pointing up. Going up, upper body is forced as upright as possible while hips are still pushed back not letting lower back to round. At the top of the movement knees stay very soft (no locking) and hips are not fully extended forward due to multiple, consecutive reps, which allows an immediate start of the next repetition pushing hips back, without any moment of losing the tight form (soft knees kept, prevent the extra pressure on lower back). Pausing at the top in this position would be a big mistake – upper body is still slightly leaning forward and an instant consecutive repetition must be started avoiding unnecessary pressure on lower back muscles.
Saying that, pausing at the top of a squat movement is what normally everyone does but here’s why Rolandas DOESN’T use that technique – to pause at the top of a squat without the extra pressure on lower back muscles, hips have to be fully extended forward, which partially relaxes core muscles that are responsible for stabilizing spine, making it more vulnerable at that point and also, hips extension locks knees putting full pressure of the whole weight straight on knee joints.
