You know what, I will admit pistol squats did nothing for me but make my vagina wetter, I have the leg development of a giraffe with rickets, shut and and deadlift brah... milk... meat...etc...
Now that you feel better about yourself, and can stop the ad hominems, I will copy and paste what this actual thread is about;
Hey, but if you're leaning really far forward in an a2g back squat, doesn't that make it hip dominant rather than quad dominant? And I thought the glutes really came into play the deeper you go below parallel?
Is forwardness of the trunk angle, or the vertical-ness of the shin the more important factor in making a squat movement quad or hip dominant?
Having the weight in front of your body allows a more vertical shin when squatting a2g, as the weight pulls you forward so you can lean further backwards (in turn making the shin more vertical) without falling over. But a vertical shin increases posterior chain involvement.
Having the weight on your back when squatting a2g means you need to lean forward in order not to fall over, which in turn causes the knee to drift over the foot. But a forward torso lean increases posterior chain involvement.
Which of the two above options increases posterior chain involvement the most?
