After tearing both sides of my groin 8 months apart (not from lifting) and spending close to 2 years rehabbing the area and completely changing the way my posterior chain functions during squatting, I used this technique to re-learn proper depth when I got back into barbell squatting.
Used it for about 2 months then ditched it.
The tricky part is finding something the perfect height. [/quote]
If you don’t mind me asking, what was the reasoning for ditching the depth marker?
Because I dont need it anymore. I know how deep to go, by feel. When I was relearning the movement with the form adjustments I wasnt able to consistently hit the same depth. Now I can. So there’s no point to using it I dont think[/quote]
Do you feel that it takes away from the benefit of the squat though? I don’t see many people using a marker, but that doesn’t mean it is necessarily bad. I actually like it, and I’m trying to find out some opinions on it. If you reply, thanks man.[/quote]
What do you mean ‘takes away from’? [/quote]
For example, do you feel that using a marker results in less strength gain or less growth? Do you feel it hinders the person from gaining the most from their squat training?
I have no idea. I used it for about 2 months and got stronger each session. But that was at a point where I was basically starting from scratch.
I really dont know what happens long term.
