Low Bar Squats: How to Perfect Your Form and Build Strength


The low bar squat is an essential compound exercise that targets several muscles in the lower body, including the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and lower back. It is a popular exercise among powerlifters and weightlifters because it allows them to lift heavier weights and build overall strength.

However, performing the low bar squat with improper form and technique can lead to injuries, such as lower back pain, knee pain, and muscle strains. That’s where the “Low Bar Squats: How to Perfect Your Form and Build Strength” video by Enterprise Fitness comes in.

The video provides several essential tips and tricks that can help you perfect your low bar squat technique and build lower body strength safely and effectively. One of the key takeaways from the video is the importance of maintaining proper posture throughout the exercise. This involves keeping your chest up, shoulders back, and core engaged. This helps to prevent your lower back from rounding and reduces the risk of injury.

Foot placement is another critical aspect of the low bar squat. The video demonstrates how to position your feet at shoulder-width apart and angle them slightly outward to help you maintain balance and stability. Mark Ottobre also explains how to position the bar correctly on your back to reduce the pressure on your spine and prevent discomfort.

In addition to these tips, the video emphasizes the importance of engaging your core and glutes during the exercise. This not only helps to protect your lower back but also improves your overall form and stability, allowing you to lift heavier weights and build more strength.

The video also provides modifications for those who may have mobility or flexibility issues, allowing them to perform the exercise safely and effectively. For instance, if you have limited ankle mobility, you can use weightlifting shoes or place a small weight plate under your heels to help you maintain proper form.

Overall, the “Low Bar Squats: How to Perfect Your Form and Build Strength” video is an excellent educational resource for anyone looking to improve their low bar squat technique and build lower body strength. By following the expert advice and tips provided in the video, you can perfect your form, maximize your gains, and reduce the risk of injury.
