    need to get the bar as low as you possibly can to get it close to your hips and shorten the lever without losing the arch in your lower back.you are better off low bar.you wont lose athleticism.use wrist wraps and chalk on your heaviest sets.wrist wraps really do help.

    yes, essential for powerlifting if you want more kgs on total. i have neve been able to work them out.

    but if you want to strengthen thighs and lift safely, i feel high bar is better.

    i dont think you will get hurt if you low bar.to me deadlifting is the more courageous movement,if you can deadlift ok then low bar will be ok.accessory work to strengthen your squat is key too.front squats good mornings etc.

    I don’t have the leverages to be an outstandingly good squatter do not allow me to deep squat but because of my leverages the high bar position built me a very strong low back purely for the reason that my low back had to move at a great degree, I could never squat to full depth, my main focus for the squat originally was to build leg strength but all it did was cause knee soreness over a protracted period of 10 years I focused on 15 to 20 rep’s 5x5 with a goal to squat 20 with one and a half times body weight, while it never really did what I wanted it to do, but what it did for me was greatly improve my metabolic strength to a great degree.

    i really believe that if one can squat to full depth then that is all on needs for the lower body.

    so gerry, what do you estimate would be the difference between your maximum high bar and low bar squat, even if you compare by a set of reps? 10-20%?
