Hey everyone, I’m new here, I’ve been lifting for a little while, and been lurking for a little less than that. Just wanted to ask a question:
I’m 6’4", and it’s really difficult for me to do back squats at all, there’s just no point for me. So I’ve been doing front squats with my pathetic numbers. I know the proper technique I think, except for one detail: when lowering, do you guys think it’s better to go ATG or to parallel?
I ask because ATG for me is really not possible for me at my level of strength/flexibility, so I’ve been going as close as I can to the ground (which ends up being an inch or so), and I’m having problems coming out of the hole. I feel like my legs can take more load, but I just…can’t do it.
Is the answer “front squat more”, or should I stop at parallel, or…?
Thanks in advance
