Upright Torso Low Bar Squat

When I do my low bar squats, by torso is relatively upright.

Is this a problem?

nb: I train for general strength. Im not looking to compete. Im 6’3 with the longest femurs in the universe and I wear do-win squat shoes to squat (poor ankle felxibility due to various injuries).

I’d kill to be able to squat more upright. It would solve some serious issues. I already have good ankle flexibility, not sure what else I can do minus shrink my extra long torso.

No. Bar height and how upright you are will be dictated by what is most comfortable and what lets you move the most weight

Nah. Plenty of gains all over still. If you want extra back or posterior chain work you can do different movements.
