Low Bar Back Squat

A very different squat than the High Bar Back Squat.  This variation allows us to recruit more of our posterior chain (hamstrings and glutes) to lift more weight!  Click HERE for a demo with explanation.


Safety Tip:  Always use a spotter or two when lifting maximal loads!  Click HERE for how to spot!  Also, prioritize a quality back position before depth.


Mobility Suggestions:

Lots of Mobility needed for this movement!  You don’t have to do everything, just be sure to test and retest to make sure that what you are working on is improving your position!
