HIGH AND LOW BAR BACK SQUAT
Mix up the way that you squat. Changing the stimulus for your body is a great way to improve your lift and get stronger. Unless you are working through a specific program that dictates the bar be set into a particular position, try switching up the position you use the next time you squat. A high bar position naturally forces your body into a more upright position. Your body mechanics will also determine which of these two variations may feel more natural, so if you only ever use one then you won’t know which one may suit you more.
Many athletes can typically lift more weight with a low bar position.
