The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    How Do Taller BBers Perform Ass To Grass Squats?

    Alright. I'm doing well so far. My program is working with all your guys help. Anyways, I wanted to know something. How do I perform ATG squats perfectly for overall strength as a taller guy? Do I have to go all the way down below parallel, or just about at the tip? I tried it out today after my normal squats with 325lbs 5x5. Tried it with 180lbs on the ATGs, but didn't feel it well. Went all the way down almost hitting the floor. Do I have to do these for overall strength, or will it bring negatives in the future. Thoughts, tips, suggestions?


    - Note: Didn't see it in the search option, so I came here.

    Its a tool just like anything else. Going lower tends to bring the glutes more into the equation.

    To answer your question, regardless of height, one needs proper hip mobility to keep his/her back straight during a high-bar-olympic-style-ATG squat. Tight hammys will hinder the back from staying straight at the bottom.

    why would a BB be doing ATF squats for strength

    also, its not possible for your ass to actually hit the floor unless your femur were much longer than the fibula/tibula.. which would be bizarre looking. lastly, if you are legit, then it depends on your stance as well. since you are bbing,etc, you are probably close stance. the closer your feet are, the more difficult it will be to maintain arch at the bottom of the squat

    They don't. ATG does nott give better hypertrophy anyway....most people tend to bounce out of the bottom.
