How to Get The Bar in Correct Position for Squats | StrongLifts.com



I thought that was high bar...so where does high bar position rest? I guess, by the pic, I'm doing low bar style squats.
That looks about right for a low-bar. Below the traps and on the delts...

Here is a good quote from Powerlifting Watch:

Quote:
The bar should go in a groove that is created when you hold your arms back between the posterior and medial head of your deltoids and right below the bulk of your upper traps.
