Is it Better to do Squats Fast or Slow?




Fast Squats

  • Build power - by improving the amount of force you produce when you stand up from a weighted squat.

  • Train explosiveness - by moving quickly on the eccentric or ascending portion of the squat

  • Can do more reps in a short amount of time


Slow Squats

  • Help perfect technique

  • Increase hypertrophy

  • Build strength due to more time under tension

Good News!

We incorporate both fast and slow squats in our Track of the Week “Ready for it”! Slow squats during each pre-chorus found 3x in the track and fast squats during each chorus.


By training both, you get the strength- and muscle-building benefits of slow squats while increasing your athleticism with fast squats.
