When you think of the word geometry, barbell back squats are probably not what come to mind, right? But then, nobody ever accused strength training coach Mark Rippetoe of being like everyone else. This was a fascinating video for me, in which I learned that there are people who think about weight lifting in a lot more depth than I do.
If you’re thinking about getting into barbell back squatting, I highly recommend checking out Mark’s material on the subject. And if you’re not a video watcher, his wonderful book Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training (my book review) will make you beg for mercy with its in-depthiness (not a real word).
