It wasn't an injury, I just used to be the guy who was scared to squat. So when I say I've been high bar squatting for 5 years, what I really mean is that if I were forced to squat as a sophomore in high school, I would use a high bar style. I wasn't good at squatting as a freshman in high school, but I was really good at clean + jerk and snatch, so that's what a majority of my program was based around for football and track (I threw shot and disc). I was 6'1 150 as a freshman, so not the best frame for squatting, and I struggled to squat my bodyweight for reps. I looked across the weight room and saw the 200lb kids squatting 225 for reps and decided I would stick with cleaning and snatching because I was the best at that.
After high school ended, I had never really squatted so I didn't really have the mental fortitude to nut up and get under a bar with some truly heavy weight. Since then, I went through phases where I'd do 5x5s and try to increase the weight, but that doesn't work if you only squat every 1-2 weeks lol.
So here I am, extremely far from my genetic potential in the squat. That's why I'm making progress right now; I'm finally on a program, I'm finally a man, and I finally understand why squatting is so important.
Sorry to bore you with my life story, but yeah, it's not an injury, it was just me being a p***y. Thankfully that's over with. The reason I squatted high bar was because my coach was a very big proponent of training like olympic lifters, and since that's how they squat, that's how I squat. I haven't had trouble handling the loads that I'm squatting (255 isn't a ton, I know) so I haven't switched to low-bar. I suppose I will in the future though
