lol. I would've said bungee cord or theraband overhand connected to your pullup bar or something.

Actually, you could stand in dip bars or below a pullup bar and "assist" through the squat (at least part of the range), getting a cooldown for the arms as well, if you were using 'em.

Re: Assessing the Cool-Down

Maybe something "productive" like dynamic/active stretching and/or joint mobility stuff, followed by passive stretching?

Re: Assessing the Cool-Down

This was just the thread I was looking for. I'm wondering, though, what the difference is between sitting down and lying down? Either way you've stopped moving, so does the position of the rest of your body play that much of a role in how well your heart does? The reason I say this is because boxers and cagefighters all just stop and sit down in between rounds, and since they seem to be okay, it stands to reason that other healthy people should be able to do this as well.
Be Legendary.
