Hello lads, I'm doing Zercher Squats because reasons and I want some info about them, opinions are very welcome too.
>It's just the retarded cousin of the front squat?
>Does it work the same kind of muscles of the standard squat?

Just front squat and then saw your biceps with a fucking saw, i train at a crossfit gym and even the y think its a stupid exercise.
>>
Do these with a heavy sandbag. Less pain more gain
>>
Use a fat bar if you have one or just wrap a towel around the bar. Great carry over to deadlifts.

why would anyone do this

weight would be too light to produce hypertrophy when compared to regular back or front squat

doesn't have any carry over for powerlighting

not a chance you'd see it in a weight lifting routine

its just some narcissistis idiot who tried to re invent the wheel so people would think he's the greatest

>It's just the retarded cousin of the front squat?
Yup.

>Does it work the same kind of muscles of the standard squat?
Pretty much. But the fact that the bar is pressing in crook of the arm, scratching and/or squeezing and pinching your skin is very distracting and unpleasant and limits the weight you can do with them.

>If you do them, why do you do?
Did them because I lacked a squat racked. Got one asap.

Works a lot of similar core structure that an atlas stone does. but you're right, it's shit.

"You are better off cutting off your dick and eating it - rather than doing "pulldown abs". What a worthless exercise. I fell for that exercise and wasted a year of my life. If an exercise can be dumber than Zercher squats, which I thought entirely impossible, it is "pull down abs". "

Wendler* Thanks AC

I'm fairly certain this lift was thought up for those that don't have access to a rack. Basically squats for poor people
>>

What's a pull down abs?
