Squat Variations: Which is Right for You?

There are a TON of squat variations out there, but which is right for you?  You need to be sure you’re choosing the right type of squat and performing it properly. But how do you choose?



Squat Variation Factors


1️⃣ Your body dimensions matter. Femur length, for example, is a huge factor as to whether you feel more comfortable in a high bar or low bar back squat.

2️⃣ Why are you squatting? Do you want to improve mobility? Trying to get the movement to transfer to a sport like basketball or golf? Each squat carries over to other areas in different ways.

3️⃣ What muscles are you aiming to strengthen? The Low Bar Back Squat works the posterior chain (glutes, hamstrings, spinal erectors) much more efficiently than a High Bar Squat. But the high bar squat is better at developing the quads and opening the hips.
