Wanted to play around with some squats today.
High Bar Squat
Used a pair of FatGripz Extreme as a barbell pad. Wanted to see if it makes a difference in the high bar squat.
It's more "comfortable" because the weight is distributed on a greater surface area, but personally I like the feel of a loaded bar digging into my traps.
It raises the bar higher up on my traps, shifting the weight higher up on my body which made it a little more difficult coming out of the hole.
I suspect the Manta Ray squat pad, Dave Draper's "Top Squat", and maybe the safety squat bar has the same effect.
