It depends on the rest of your program. Pick whichever one fills in the hole that's missing in your workout. If you are working on sprinters, a high bar squat might be better to hit their quads since heavy sprints is likely to develop their hamstrings and not their quads. If your athletes have stronger quads, I would work on low bar squat instead. I feel like the quads are less likely to get hit in most athletes, and the hip mobility gained from highbar squat may be more helpful for most athletes. As mentioned above try to incorporate dead lifts as well, or flute hamstrings or food mornings
Just squat. Both will strengthen the posterior chain if you go to parallel. Athletes with longer limbs relative to their torsos will get more glute and low back development due to the need to lean forward though. Squatting more weight relative to ones body weight makes for a better athlete.
Is the high bar or low bar squat of better benefit to the athlete on your guys opinion? I'm specifically a basketball player so which is better for me?
Lol this is a dumb question ultimatel ask yourself why the position would matter to your legs.
-altering exercises reduces stress on nervous system
-fact you should focus on banded squats (focuses more on speed of squay than the weight)
-you need to do a lot of lunges ( I saw this because it is sport specific and will even build up ur core)
-RESEARCH if u wanna be good get acquainted with Michael Yessis PHD and louie simmons (decorated powerlifter, trained boxers, AND SPRINTERS,AND NFL ATHLETES)
