    (Best Gluts) Squat: Barbell on Upper Back #13735

    Listed by Aaron Yamaguchi MS, ATC, CSCS, USAW, USATF











    Primary Muscles:
    GLUTEALS
    HAMSTRINGS
    LEGS
    LEGS-OVERALL
    QUADS

    Technical Difficulty:
    3 ALARM FIRE: ADVANCED INTENSITY

    Equipment:
    BARBELL

    Training Benefit:
    STRENGTH


    Starting Position:
    Place the Barbell on the upper back (top of the shoulder blades). Brace your abdominals to protect your lower back. Place both feet shoulder width apart. You may turn you toes out. Look forward throughout the movement. Your hips and shoulders should rise and lower at the same tempo. Do not bend at the waist and lower your shoulders....this will put your lower back at risk.

    Progress
    : Sit back, puthing your hips and knees back. Lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Do not let your knees pass your toes and keep your knees align with the second toe of each foot. Push through your heels and return to the starting position. Remember to raise your shoulders and hips at the same rate. Do not fully extend your knees at the top of the range.

    Tips
    : The Barbell Back Squat exercise can also be performed with a dumbbell, resistance band, weight/plate, medicine ball.
