The other main lift in the sport of powerlifting is the squat. Many variations on this as well, the squat, like the deadlift is also very technical, if not performed as properly as possible, it can lead to setbacks. With the squat, also involves a hip hinge in which you are sitting down, but it’s important to have your hips open up and knees go out as you descend. As far as bar placement, you want it on your traps, “low-bar” or “high-bar” really depends on where your more comfortable holding the bar as you come down. When you descend, you want to tighten your core, elbows pointed back parallel with your torso when you hinge, sometimes slightly higher. Dig the bar into your body, then descend with a tight core and glutes, go below parallel, or at least parallel if you can’t break it. Then on the way up, use leg drive and hips to go up, while maintaining core strength and balance. The front squat is a different variation, and I will go more into detail on that in a different video.
