Thanks Paradox! I used to low bar squat but I had a severe forward lean! So I am high bar squatting now and have been for awhile.

Yeah like I said earlier I don't have a choice on squatting away from the mirror without spinning the rack around every time. Not sure I want to do that haha. I don't particularly think the mirror is a problem for me, but it may make squatting in a meet a little more terrifying since there won't be a mirror there lol
