Switching to High Bar
Do you guys recommend it? im contemplating to do this because im an athlete(wrestling/sprinter) and i heard that high bar has a greater transfer to athletics than low bar. Also im running a weekly progression routine, texas method, and was wondering if the high bar squat would be good. i ask this because whenever i dont feel like i can lift up the weight i can always "spot" with my low back and help me get the weight up.
I want to know your guys' opinions. does it have more transfer to athletics? can i progress as easily as the low bar? does it have more risks than the low bar? ei more pressure on the spine.
Squat - 315
Bench - 225
Deadlift - 350
