      if you lifted you'd know that you can literally feel the difference in the working muscles the deeper you squat. Just below parallel is great for powerlifting, but for maximum development ass to grass is better.

      Do toe touches every day for 30 seconds. Keep straight legs and straight back. You'll be surprised at how fast you go from wooden plank to stretch armstrong.

    How much less can you lift going all the way down than just to parallel?

    I do both atg squats (better total ROM) and powershart squats (better glute torque).

    >results based on angle of knee flexion
    Pic related is what 90 degrees of knee flexion might look like for a couple lifters. One with a shorter femur and one with a longer femur. Red is the bar path. Blue is parallel to the floor. In essence you don't have to go ATG. Just going to about parallel for most people is more than enough for full recruitment of all muscles.

      Yes. I have great mobility and actually was able to go down past 135° up to 95lbs. 100lbs+ I've had to stop around 120° because otherwise I pee a bit (pelvic floor injury).

      This is an important thing to keep in mind. However I will also always recommend mobility work for anyone having difficulty getting into position since lack of flexibility can lead to other problems.

    I do ATG because it feels safer. High bar ATG just feels amazing. My weights aren't impressive at all but I'm happy with it.

    Yes because I'm not an ego lifting homosexual. Mobility is infinitely more valuable than being able to half rep 300 lbs.

    What's the difference between EMG and Shear Forces?

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      EMG is surface electromyography. It just means the nerves are activating muscle fibers given parameters of whatever study the image is being derived from and some of it is being picked up by electrodes.

      Shear forces are forces acting on a structure like a joint, tendon, etc. A shear force is a force acting in two opposing directions on an object. Think of trying to tear a piece of paper in two.

    How do I git gud at ATG squats? I can do them but on heavier weights it strains my lower back and I feel my form breaking down pretty easily. Can go double what I can do on an ATG squat with just a conventional squat depth and not suffer the same form breakdown.

      Do you know what 90 degrees of knee flexion looks like? See:

      If you're squatting to parallel, you likely have much more knee flexion than 90 degrees

          No. I won't stop being autistic until everyone realizes that squats are an extension across three joints and stops pretending that ATG is necessary for strength training and stop pretending that it's anything but a fitness influencer fad when the data says you only have to squat to parallel when you account for the motion of at least one other joint than the knee.

        The image means 90 degrees from your standing position meaning 90 degrees is right at parallel.

          It doesn't mean that at all. The angle of knee flexion by definition is the angle between the tibia and the femur. It does not account for hip flexion or ankle flexion. We won't bring up hip flexion as this only relevant to the somewhat linear path of the bar and not the measurement of knee flexion.

          When you squat and the bar starts to descend, because your feet are fix, the knee must travel forward as it flexes resulting in both ankle flexion and knee flexion. When ankle flexion occurs, the angle between the bar path and the tibia increases. As a result, when the angle of knee flexion is measured, it is no longer the angle from the bar path. It is the angle from the tibia which is no longer parallel to the bar path. Because of this 90 degrees of knee flexion is not parallel to the ground.

          In addition as the bar travels further down along its path beyond the point where there is 90 degrees of knee flexion, the knee travels further forward.
          When the bar hits the point where the femur is parallel to the ground, because the tibia's angle from the bar path is even greater than before, we can say that amount of knee flexion is much greater than 90 degrees. It's very likely close if not at 135 degrees for many people at that point. In fact, in some people with sufficiently long femurs it may be greater than 135 degrees, where the measurements in the chart cut off at.

          Finally given that the EMG is maximized throughout the range, if you are squatting to parallel and knee flexion is less than 135 degrees, you probably will not get any benefit going below there. Why? Because you have to deload the muscle to extend the range of the lift. Given that muscles grow in response to mechanical tension and you cause a muscle to grow from progressive tension overload, the total amount of tension throughout the ROM very likely will be at best equal to what you'd get doing parallel. More likely given how small the added ROM is, it will be less. Hence worse for gainz.

            >The angle of knee flexion by definition is the angle between the tibia and the femur
            Oops. The supplementary angle along the axis of the tibia is being used. Nonetheless, it does not change the explanation.
