Do you guys recommend it?

Sure try it for a few months.

I want to know your guys' opinions. does it have more transfer to athletics?

Maybe, maybe not. Rippetoe is pretty convincing for low bar being better.


can i progress as easily as the low bar?

You get what you put in to it.


does it have more risks than the low bar? ei more pressure on the spine.

All things have risk. You are moving the center of mass forward from posterior to core and quads. That is all




This thread did get derailed a bit.

I don't think 'forward lean' always needs to be fixed. At least if your names Goggins that is lol A lower bar poss tends to induce a greater lean. If that produces more weight on the bar for the same depth, and that is concurent to your aims its a win!

Again you got to play to your strengths and for your own goals.

I am a big fan of squating and love excellent technique through all the different styles. Recently did a very nice phase of paused high bar (almost full ROM) and enjoyed immensly.This is depsite the fact I am normally a low bar wide stance cheater

Try it and see. For general strength and conditioing for a sport I highly doubt it matters what style you use. I certanly don't think one is more 'athletic' than the other.

Most of the big raw squatters I personally know use it, from the Lilliebridges on.

Despite what you read online, high bar is actually pretty common in the raw powerlifting realm.

I definitely would try it and see if you like it.
