505 No Hands High Bar Squat

I know this is dumb but I’m pretty happy and impressed my self with it haha. Haven’t ever dome these lol.

I was supposed to do an RPE 8 for 6 reps on the SSB. But about 8 people were squatting in the mono and didn’t feel like waiting for them to finish. So figured I’d do high bar squats to keep my bicep happy. Around 325 I started feeling my bicep and elbow any way so just said screw it and dropped my hands all together. No bicep pain haha


I did no hands SSB squats as a warm up to yoke walks on Saturday and for a split second I thought about doing a straight bar.

I couldnt work out an exit strategy if the bar shifted so I decided I’m not crazy enough to try them yet haha

Nice work, try not to become addicted haha

Are you trying to compete with Koklyaev? He squatted more than you with no hands but you did it for reps, I’m not sure which is better.

Lol I figured if anything it would be easier to dump the bar this way since usually my shoulders so shitty I can’t get my hands off the bar if it falls ha. With that being said these are MUCH harder than a SSB with no hands.
