High Bar Back Squat


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of Barbell Shrugged.  This cycle’s squat variation will focus on the High Bar Back Squat.  This version is so beneficial to improving our body position throughout our Oly lifts as well as any squat we do.  Keeping constant tension in the torso is key to the upright position throughout the lift.
