Every 4 minutes for 3 rounds:
10 Ball Slams (30/15)
20 HR Push ups

Why are we doing this? The dead stop squat can be done from the back or front and helps train rate of force development / explosive-strength, aggression and can be used to strengthen specific ranges of motion in the squat. Most commonly, this would be around the parallel position, which is the most mechanically disadvantageous position and will create a sticking point in the lift. The dead-stop squat differs from the pause squat because it removes much of the pre-tension of the muscles and consequently demands higher rate of force development.
