The Low Bar

Nick | 01/13/2015 | 4


The low bar back squat is a great version of squatting to work on while we’re focusing on specific elements of our lift each day.  A simple eplaination of why would be that because we place the bar in a different spot on our back, our bodies create different angles as we lower into the squat than they do in our high bar back squat while keeping the bar over our base of support (the arch of the foot).  This builds different patterns and has a different impact on our bodies.  For a (much) more detailed explanation, see the article below.

    LBBS: 225#
    WOD: 18 Rx
    24″ box jumps. Rebounded for the first round but had a nice tall glass of NOPE the second round. Despite not rebounding I kept ’em all to jumps, though, no step ups / downs. SPICY.
