Barbell Squat

Check out our NEW workout series This Is How I Train!

The Barbell Squat is the king of exercises and great for increasing total strength and body development. Have the bar on the midline of the traps and not on the neck. Make sure your hip moves back first before the knee bends and lower yourself till your upper leg is parallel to the floor. Always activate the core and go to full range of motion.

    Wtf…. is that hair under his chin?

    Great stuff guys, thanks. One tip I was taught was to face the other way,
    that is walk to the bar, raise it up and take a step back before squatting.
    The advantage is if you’re heading to failure and want to put it back down
    quickly it’s easier to talk forward & use your eyes to find the frame.

    there always be a muscle between your neck and your shoulder, just find the
    right spot and put the bar there

    Do you use a towel for padding on your back when you squat ?

    What if you don’t have legs?

  7. kaffert / May 23, 2013

    Thank you this was very useful!

  8. Vasper79 / June 7, 2013

    I always find it easier to do squats with my legs together? instead of
    apart like the vid..does it make difference in muscle development? Thanks.

    Smooth technique and even smoother instruction… your future lies with
    public speaking, you have a clear talent for communication there.

    Dude, that was a wonderful demonstration. The speaker was very
    professional, calm, and knowledgeable. I only wish we could have seen the
    movement from the side as well, as it’s easier to see a proper
    demonstration of how far down to go.

  12. witardedphuc / September 8, 2013

    Its weird how these squats mean totally different things for guys and girls.

    Guys= Get muscle all over your body fast and gain lots of strength

    Girls= Get bigger booty 

  17. Jordan Karim / February 26, 2015

    Question: Does going over 90 degrees offer any benefit in squatting? It
    seems most guys go to 90 degrees, but is that enough!?! Everyone always
    says 90 but my body will let me get to about 60-70 degrees. Thanks!

    • / February 27, 2015

      Deeper squats are great for activating more muscle groups such as the
      glutes and hamstrings. If you enjoy powerlifting it is also important to
      keep in mind that most standards require an angle slightly deeper than 90
      degrees for it to count.

    • Jordan Karim / February 27, 2015 Great to know! I don’t seem to be increasing in weight
      as fast as my workout partner who does only to 90 degrees. That is why I
      wondered if it was worth it. We do 5×5 with progressive load warmup.

    thank you
