    Hey everyone, I searched the forums but couldn't find a post explaining how to assist or spot someone doing a negative squat. I was taught in highschool to bearhug the "squattie" from behind to help stablize their core. Does anyone know the correct technique for assisting negative squats?

    Yeah that bearhug technique is what I usually see for spotting, but generally people don't do negatives on squats. It can be pretty dangerous if you ask me. I just up the weight and start clustering, myself.

    I'v never heard of anyone doing negative squatting, it's too dangerous I think plus you'de need about four very strong guys spotting! Better off concentrating on rest-pause or partial range squats with a heavier weight.
