Daily reminder that low bar squats are absolute, utter shit.

The only people who low bar squat are fat ugly nerds, dyel redditors, and those fat fucking "powerlifters" you can smell from across the gym.

Fat sits make you fat as fuck and unathletic. Girls dont even give a fuck about legs and "muh strength". ALso, enjoy your herniated discs.

Do yourself a favor: get some class, get some self respect, and quit being a fucking nerd.

So what's the purpose of zercher squats anyway?

There is none. Like low bar squats, they are done by people to look "cool". NErds low bar squat because none of the cool jocks do it and have to be unique.

Zerchers are dope. Can't do as much weight but it makes a whole lot easier to achieve depth and its a great full body exercise. Its not absolutely necessary but they are a fun exercise.
>>
>>35998568
I might be. His kness go forward a lot but the last bit looks like low bar. I guess it's just a bit harder to tell when its someones 1RM since form isn't always perfect when doing it.
>>
>>35998652
That's fucking Mike Tuchscherer, lad. He's among the best powerlifters in the world.

Knee travel is very much present in low bar squatting as well for most people. Just look at great powerlifters like Jonnie Candito, Brett Gibbs, Josh Hancott, Jesse Norris, Garrett Blevins etc. To find someone with no knee travel is extremely rare.

High bar squats feel ridiculous. Front squats and low bar squats feel much more natural.

>Supposed to squat

What does that even mean? The barbell was around before humans and through natural selection the human body has adapted trapezius muscles which perfectly cushion the wild barbell when they squat for nourishment?

There's nothing especially natural about squatting a barbell and a high bar squat doesn't precisely resemble how people rest in the squatting position.

It's lowbar.

>>35998480

I thought we were talking about, you know, lifting weights?
>>
>>35999900
Yeah, because increasing the weight is the only thing that matters.

>>35999846
But it isn't, you have to be more upright than normal in order to balance the bar, and even if it was, it wouldn't make low bar any better.

>>
>>35996312
When will you idiots realize that you're considering one weight class? Out of the 8 or so classes, maybe 1 is filled with fatties. And also theres lots of fat olympic weight lifters.
>>
>>35996796
Different loading pattern, holding it in front of you makes you use your upper back more.
Also allows for greater depth to be achieved providing some extra posterior chain activation, plus it hits dem biceps mayne.
>>
>>36000116
Alright lets all just do the whatever one lift that allows us to use the most weight. See how that logic is fucking retarded? Whats the point of doing an exercise to measure the strenght of your legs when your back is doing a good deal of the lifting?
>>
>>36000206
Its not supposed to measure the strength of your legs, its meant to measure your ability to put weight up. Thats the entire point of powerlifting, not to even be strong but to lift the fucking weight. If it were to be strong, then why fucking bother using the most mechanically efficient technique?
>>
Just fucking squat. Do what works best for you, what is most comfortable, and allows full rom. This argument is tired boys.
>>
>>36000206
What the fuck are you on about?
The whole point to powerlifting is moving the most weight possible. How do you not understand that?
>>
Question:
I'm 2 weeks into SS and I've been doing high bar squats. I recently read SS (the book) and now I'm considering switching to lowbar. My highbar is currently higher than my lowbar by a marginal amount. My lowbar is 200lb and my highbar is 215.

is there a point to switching over to lowbar while I'm only 15lbs behind my highbar? Will the weight I can lift increase at the same rate for each one? Would the lowbar increase faster because the deadlift and lowbar complement eachother? (do they?)
>>
>>36000236
>>36000236
Then just do fucking deadlifts, it's more weight.
>>
>>36000285
you can generally move more weight lowbar, but if you're not going to be competing, or find high bar more comfortable then just stick with that. It doesn't really matter

Then your back is doing none of the concentric, only isometric. So your back isn't doing a 'good portion of the work', and you're wrong.
>>
>>36001076
>isometric contraction isn't work
>>
>>36001088
Of course it is. But it isn't taking from the work of the concentric, the part done by legs, so your post means nothing.
>>
>>36001097
You should be able to tell how the lower back does the last bit of the squat where your back does a hinge motion, your torso doesn't stay still the entire time.
>>
>>36001196
False, that would necessitate lumbar flexion, what is actually happening is the gluteus and hamstrings extend the hips.
>>
>>36001222
So you're saying literally everyone who talks about how low bar uses the posterior chain more is wrong.
>>
>>36001298
No. I'm not sure you really understand what's meant in my post or even by the phrase 'posterior chain', that or you don't understand why an increased isometric load on the lumbar wouldn't mean there is a lower concentric load on the legs.
>>

Bro lowbar squats are not the same as highbar squats, and interchanging them like they're the same is more retarded than either.
>>
>>35996394
Do you really not understand it?
Dude, spend some time on [s4s]. You'll soon realize that all of life is [s4s], and to post unironically is the only thing one could truly cringe at.
>>
>>35996744

Start light and progress naturally. Technically the upper part of the spine should be neutral with the weight - you can zercher less than you can deadlift, if you feel the pressure your t-spine is weak and needs catch up.

>>35996796
for powerlifting: deadlift assistance movement

for strongman: assistance movement for (in decreasing order of importance: conan's wheel, sandbag carry, tire flip, stone lift. I do strongman so axle bar zerchers are my primary squat variant.

for MUHFUNCTIONALSTRENGTH people, like roadies and porters and such: anterior loading as would befit a real-world carry, as in helping move someone

for first responders or anyone who wants conditioning: trains you to work with your diaphragm compressed - really strengthens the abs and ribcage.

>>35998230
Incorrect, see above.

>>35998651
It is also excellent training for banging someone while standing up.

feels bad
>>
>>36002413
>>6 months wastedo
dude as much as /fit/ loves bashing low bar it will give u dat posterior chain better than any other lift, the carryover to deadlift is much higher than a highbar squat. that being said highbar just feels a lot more natural and i cant really see myself doing low bar ever again
>>
How do I learn high bar? I'm never sure where exactly the bar is placed
>>
>>36002946
place bar on traps, stay as upright as possible, break at knees. there u go now you know high bar.
>>
>>36003174
