Back At It

It’s been quite a while since we’ve done low bar back squats, but we brought them back into the mix today.
If you haven’t noticed we’ve been doing a lot of work to build up the back muscles and the posterior in general. High bar back squats are a great way to build strength for Oly lifting. And low bar back squats are a great way to build posterior strength.
Don’t worry if this movement didn’t feel totally natural for you today. You will see it again, and it will start to feel better. For others, this may have felt like a much more natural way of squatting.
Here’s Carmen looking quite comfortable with the low bar.
