PowerLifting Squat – this hips back position allows the athlete to load the hamstrings and glutes more effectively however it is more difficult to reach depth in this position. Also, the chest is forced forward. If a barbell was entered into the front rack position the weight would be out in front of the athletes mid-line making it more difficult to stand up with.
Oly Squat – you can immediately notice the difference here. The torso is much more erect with the shoulder stacked over the hips and ankles. If a barbell is introduced in the front rack or overhead position it would be much easier for the athlete to transmit force to the weight as the body is in this stacked positions and would create a much straighter more efficient bar path. This results ultimately in adding much more weight in the squat clean and front squat variations. Work to get comfortable and perfect this position and watch all your numbers go up.
