Default Plate squats

For technique not for using huge loads at all:




Plate squats encourage upright posture and appropriate load distribution. Hold the plate parallel to the ground. If the plate tilts downwards, you’re probably rounding your back.

To be a real hardass, try balancing a ball on top of the plate, as shown in the photo below.

Use a light plate.
