The fact that the weight sits much higher on your back with the SSB should make good morning it much more difficult due to the longer lever are. I certainly can’t good morning anywhere near the weight with an SSB than with a regular bar.
How bent forward are you getting that the bar is actually rolling towards your head?
Oh yeah, you’re definitely not going to use the same weight with the SSB as you would with a straight bar.
The position would be similar to the one in the video I linked.
I may not be explaining myself well here. Jim Wendler wrote about his observation with the form differences between the two movements here, and it’s a sentiment I have experienced as well.
[quote]Conan approved! I don’t recommend this bar for beginners learning to squat â?? it’s a vastly different movement than a normal squat and can be very awkward. But for an experienced squatter this bar is 100% Conan Approved because you can just grunt lift.
Once I un-rack this bar, I make sure I open the knees, sit back a bit, and stay tight. But once I’m at the bottom, all bets are off. I just muscle the weight up with little regard to form. With my hands on the yoke, I drive everything up at the same time, trying to keep my elbows high.
I’m not saying I squat with bad form, it’s simply easier to just squat and not worry about the angle of your pinky toe. It’s a nice refreshing departure from what can become an overcomplicated lift.
The form used with the safety squat bar is far different from a straight bar. This is fine if you’re an experienced squatter, but may confuse the hell out of a beginner. It’s probably not something I’d put a beginner under unless he’s suffering from a shoulder or wrist injury.[/quote]
