    First SSB Squat Session

    I am humble now.



    I was only using somewhere between 245 and 265 (unsure of actual bar weight) with green bands, and it felt goddamn awful...in a good way, if that makes sense. I'll definitely be utilizing it a lot during this offseason. My erectors and obliques are smoked today.

    One thing that helped me- with cushiony padd its easy to let your upper body get loose. Make sure to keep that shit as tight as always.

    Yeah, I noticed that. It's weird feeling at first, but I can definitely see why conjugate lifters utilize it so much.

    My gym just bought one, so I was eager to try it out. It's the beginning of a love/hate relationship.

    That bar will make a man out of you.

    Quick question, what am i doing wrong form wise in a normal squat since i was 30lbs heavier with my ssb?

    was told some guys "front load" squatting normally, others "back load" whatever that means?

    Are you pulling down real hard on the handles or pushing them up? Either one will throw the bars center of gravity off and affect the lift.
