I just find low bar to parallel squatting to be a fundamentally different exercise than the high bar ATG squat. For some reason the idea has grown in the strength training community that it's either "ATG or nothing" because the idea has been that ATG is the "full ROM" and anything less is "quarter squatting". However, the form of a low bar squat to parallel is different than a high bar ATG squat, and the former recruits the PC moreso than the latter. I feel like a lot of people are squatting ATG with no real reason to do so.Quote:
