I’ve been low-bar squatting for a while as, for me, I feel stronger and more solid with a low bar position. However, I’m wondering if my bar position is actually drifting too low?
When I get my shoulders set it creates kind of two shelf’s. One across the traps with the bar crossing the shoulders around the back of the mid-delt/top of the rear delt. The second shelf is kind of across the top of the scapula with the bar crossing the shoulders across the rear-delt. However, I’ve begun placing the bar below that second “shelf”. Really across the the scapula and crossing the bottom of the rear delts, almost top of the tricep. It’s a position where I’m slightly tilted from the hips at the top and a fair bit of the weight kind of feels like its in my hands more than on my shoulders.
I know that sounds unstable, but when I actually squat that position just feels more solid. I’m just wondering if its “too low”. Does anyone else squat with the bar this low? Should I be trying to move the bar position a little higher?
I know pics would help, but I haven’t been able to get any at my gym. Thanks in advance.
