4-Punch Combo for Squats

The great thing about this "4-punch combo" is that it is not reserved just for the warm-up. It can and should be performed in between your primary exercises. For example, if you are squatting, do this:

Set 1) Squat with Barbell Only:  20 reps (warm-up)

Bodyweight Squat => Cossack Squat => Deep Lunge => External Rotation on Bench

Set 2) Squat: 135 lbs. x 10 reps

Bodyweight Squat => Cossack Squat => Deep Lunge => External Rotation on Bench and so on… until you are hitting depth and are ready to move into your heavier sets.
