We will be looking at the Back Squat with a high bar position and elbows forward.

Like the front squat, when racking out of the bar, you will want to be well under the bar with heels underneath the bar. Secure the bar onto the back in a high position. Some people opt for a low bar position, however this does take a bit more experience and can result in an excessive forward lean, so for the purposes of this article, we will stick to the high bar position which is up on the top of the traps.

Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
