When performing a Back Squat the Athlete should rest the barbell on top of the Shoulder Blades not below. The Rhomboids should be pulled back and together. The elbows should be down and slightly angled back. Your hands should firmly grasp the bar with a rigid wrist. The upper and lower back should be “Set” before the lift is even initiated. Your Torso should always remain as upright as possible and never, never collapse. Balance should be maintained over the arch of the foot, not excessively on the heels. Always remember Balance. If you do these things you will perform the lift correctly.
