For many of us the Low Bar Back Squat has felt very unnatural and awkward. Not having the torso upright, not “bottoming out”, not wrapping our thumbs around the bar, and having the bar loaded across our scaps are just a few of the many things that can make this movement feel odd to some of us.
But for others, this version of the back squat feels much more natural. Some of this can be due to what we have been conditioned to, or our anthropometry (the measurements and proportions of our anatomical make up) or whether we’re more anteriorly strong (would favor the high bar back squat) or posteriorly driven (would favor the low bar).
Looks like Rosemary feels very comfortable in the low bar position.
