Low bar vs high bar squat
4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I'm really comfortable form-wise with the high bar position, so I'm hesitant to mess with it, but I've noticed that my hamstrings and glutes are much weaker than my quads and lower back (I can deadlift 265 and clean 135, but I'm struggling to squat more than 135).
From what I understand, the low bar position is better for building strength in the posterior chain. Is it worth the time for me to perfect my form in another position, or should I just stick with the position I'm comfortable with?

FAT HATE THREAD
162 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Hey, /fit/, been trying to come to grips with this issue of mine. (Well, not exactly an issue, more so a societal ill). Every time I look at a fat person I just gag in my mouth, and I'm not using hyperbole. The sick slobs are always finger twiddling whilst eating their grease-laden cheeseburgers or something. Anyways, to get to the crux of my point: are there any theories as to why they don't get off their custard-covered asses and do something productive with their meaningless lives? To me, dying at 38 from a heart attack isn't the way I want to be remembered. Besides, there will probably be a funeral procession of Big Macs or some shit. Thanks for your time
