Form

Squat with High Bar Form

The squat with high bar should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the squat with high bar.

Beginning

Beginning Squat with High Bar

Most lifters' grips can be very narrow, with their thumbs wrapped around the bar. The bar is placed across the shoulders on top of the trapezius muscles. The stance will be slightly narrower, and the knees will travel slightly forward during the descent compared to their position in the low bar squat.

Movement

Squat with High Bar Movement

1. Look straight ahead instead of down, as in the low bar squat (not up at the ceiling). The result of your head, eyes, and neck should always be a neutral neck position.

2. Thinking about chest up or lead with your chest is our favorite cue. This assists the lifter in remaining upright and balanced on the midfoot.
