I was reading the post on the pros and cons of Low Bar vs High Bar Squatting by Justin.
Really informative article.
High Bar Squat Summary:
Summary: The high bar squat is superior for Olympic weightlifting because it teaches proper clean/snatch receiving positioning. If there are problems with the low bar squat, then the high bar can be used to balance musculature or maintain squatting frequency. However, the high bar doesn’t utilize the hamstring’s stretch reflex nor does it develop the posterior chain.
Low Bar Squat Summary:
Summary: The low bar is good for general strength training and powerlifting, yet it’s difficult to do well. It may have a place — much like the bench press — in beginner Olympic weightlifting training depending on the trainees weaknesses, but probably shouldn’t be used beyond the beginning stages.
But what really got me motivated was the video of Max Aita squatting.
Max tries to do 5 sets of 5 on the squat with 260kg. He ends up getting a total of 27 reps over 7 sets. No belt or wraps, just knee sleeves.
