No shit. Straight to the point!!!
Gotta try the hack squat one tomorrow! It looks more like a deadlift.
Thank you for these!!! <3
I finally managed to get a bar and some weights in my home (everything was sold out for months!) and tried the zercher squat for the first time. Boy, are they rough to figure out at first, you make it look easy.
Part of the issue I have is the same issue I have with front squats - my short arms. It's actually quite tough to get both of my arms completely under the bar from the bar-atop-the-knees position. As a result, I ended up rolling the bar from my forearms down to the elbow crease when getting back up. This will not be feasible going forward as the weight starts to increase - at the very least, it'll leave me with some bruising.
One piece of kit I don't have is those sleeves that you were wearing, I'll look into getting those to see if that alleviates this problem.
Thanks. I'm upstairs and want to squat but don't want to screw myself up.
Done with class!
The hack squat tip is amazing. Going to try this ASAP!
