    Squating form


    Ive been squatting for about 6 months and my usual technique has been squatting until upper leg is parallel to ground.

    But the last 6 weeks of the 6 months I have been squatting i started doing the "ass to the grass" technique....

    I have had better gains in the last 6 weeks than the previous 3 months or so doing regular squats.

    "Ass to the grass" is the way to go!

    Thanks AM!

    Ass to grass is the only way to squat! Everything else is just half-assing it (pun intended). Congrats!

    Way to go!! Nice to see people squatting too.. It's the best way to go, and once you get good at 'em, they're like crack!

    Ass to the floor with a narrow stance has yielded the best development for me.
