It sits lower on your back.. like below the trap instead of on top of it. This does 2 things.. First, when you squat, the bar sits on your back, but all the work is done at the hips. So the back acts as a bridge between the hips and the bar. So the shorter the bridge, the stronger.

And for me, lowering the center of gravity helped a lot.. I feel a lot less like I am going to tip over under the weight. Also, it helps me keep my heels from lifting.

Only problem is it really jacks up my shoulders, I need to work on flexibility

High bar isn't so much "wrong" as it is "not the best way"

High bar squats are far from wrong. They're more quad dependent and have great carryover benefits into olympic style lifts and other sports.

That being said, I switched to low bar not too long ago and love it. It was like an epiphany; just felt like the way squats were meant to be done (that is if your goal is like mine, to move the most weight possible).

These last few pages are gold.

For me, I have the bar on my traps, go a2g and bounce back up.
When I try the low bar squat, it just places so much stress on my shoulders it hurts
Tried that today actually, hurt me and I xouldnt do shoulder presses, everytime I extended it hurt, seemed like a tendon

In planning lol, doing these reflections, what a big difference this thread and weightlifting has made in my life. Picked up the pieces and found myself again, after what I thought would be eternal depression.

I screwed up my shoulder trying to do low bar squat, thought I could do more weight

but I've learned that my left shoulder isn't as strong as I thought it would be so I'm working on that now, I didn't pinch any nerves luckily, just left shoulder couldn't support the weight

@Skinny - what kind of shoulder problems do you have with squats? I found changing to thumbless grip on the bar puts way less strain on the delts

For the guys that cant go a2g, hip tucks, back rounds, w/e - try going wider stance on your squats. I know it'll suck because it uses different parts of your legs but it'll help you hellp your back straight and no hip tuck

Guys I have a problem with my left shoulder, it always gives out first in any exercise. I could do the exercise for sure but just not as many reps as my right one. Is this still considered an injury? Say I'm doing shoulder presses, the left gives out first, same with dumbbell presses (a chest exercise obviously) or benching. Often when my shoulders are tired, the left one can't even stretch upwards to 180 degree with some light 15 pounders, but the right one can. Any help here? Thanks

yea

strengthen your shoulder..

lower weight and do a number of reps with your left arm, do the same number of reps with the right right

it takes a while to fix, don't expect it to be like next week your left shoulder will be on par with your right

I did but couldn't get past 2 reps. I've lost 13lbs or so(cutting) down to 187 and am back to 285 x 5.

I want 3 plate with 5 reps this time!
