    I dont understand the test he describes at all; stand with back mildly arched and knees at 90 degrees and use the arms to push the butt to the heels? It should look like a sideways squat? Huh? The way he describes it sound like you start in a parallel squatted position. Does anyone have a better way to explain this or know where some pics are?

    The source is always at the bottom of the article. Just follow the link. Enjoyed the article actually, It's interesting to see why the low bar squat works so well for me.

    I always enjoy learning something, and the difference in starting with the hips or the knees was interesting to watch.

    I like how the write up covers different angles of squat patterns incorporating the bio-mechanics of which muscles become the primary movers and where the center of gravity is found. Think I will try some lower back placement in the future.
