    krakkerz, what's your opinion on "sport" squats - a narrower base squat (feet shoulder/hip width) where the athlete goes down to parallel or just above? This is something strength coach Cal Dietz...

    I don't think it is an overcomplicated response, just detailed. OP is educated enough to know about joint angles and has obviously heard the, "always squat below parallel" response. Some people...

    What leads you to believe your lower back is weak? Outside of the powerlifting world, I don't feel any athlete needs direct lower back training. More than likely it is your upper back that is weak if...
