Nice work Glen...!

I'm finding seeing other peoples bar position very interesting - I sit the bar right at the top of my traps, on my neck really - the more of these vids I see, the more I'm thinking that's way too high, and probably adds to my lack of ability to go deep, as to centre the weight vertically will require me leaning back more.

Very helpful

depends as its to different movements - high bar/olympic favours quads, low bar powerlifting favours more hips

you will br stronger with the bar lower down usually but if its more quad development opt for the high bar

Ah, ok, makes sense - so I actually want it high up given I'm more fussed about wheel size than strength?

Bloody great squats Glen - deep enuff to qualify for me.
If there is a tie on reps you must win by bodyweight - awesome weight

I love the big bald guy behind you watching and keep looking back just to make sure you are lifting 180!!

thats why i had the front squats for more quad work at the end of the video - to be honest i was happier with that than the back squats

Had a crack at this today, head cold seemed to get worse over the weekend do was very happy with this although depth is not quite there. happy as this was done at 82kg so well over twice bodyweight.

Will post video later Wink

Strong as an ox Glen.  Grin

I'm 50/50 on the depth, cant really tell because of the camera angle. I did prefer the sideways-on angle you used to shoot your other 180kg attempt which is on the leaderboard.

Second opinion anyone?

Give it my best Jon.

Really enjoying the challenges at the moment and hope to top squats and deads on both 140kg and 180kg- with the size of my bum at the moment feel this should be easy  Grin

Nice attempt but to be brutally honest the depth was definately a good 6 inches off. Thats the problem with squats though, there isnt a definate start and finish like with deadlift and bench.

I don't expect it to be powerlifting depth standard (crease of hip below knee) but would suggest at least quads horizontal with the floor.
