Thanks man

So! I've been wrestling with this whole "low bar is for powerlifters, high bar is for olympians" thing thats been going around. I understand around here the concensus is "do what helps you push the most weight", still Its hard to fight the stigma at times. So since I am doing the hepburn method, I figured "hey what did my fellow canadian strong guy do?"

High bar, butt back parallel squat. Whale maybe its a Canadian thing haha


The next picture shows kind of a hybrid thing going on, his torso is a bit more upright as would be for a high bar, but the bar is a little bit lower and he still hits parallel


The take away? High bar or low bar doesn't limit your squat potential. You do.
