Now, when you are referring to the "B-Squat" I assume you are referring to Bryce Lane's staggered stance squat, correct?

I like Bryce's stuff a lot. His little booklets are very creative and thought provoking and well worth checking out.

Yes, I am referring to the staggered-stance "B" squat. How it is so ignored by so many smart trainers/coaches baffles me. As I said before on the CF board, a couple of sets of "B" squats will help nearly anyone's normal back squat be deeper with improved form (my guess is that it helps to mobilize and improve proprioception in the ankle that lifts off the ground, that has a chain reaction up the entire lower extremity--but that's just a guess based on my Z-Health training).

And yes, it is possible to hijack your own thread. You saw it here first...

True. Good to see someone smart validating the B squat. I have boogled up knees (chondro, had lateral retinacular releases, both knees, ITBS etc.) that I have rehabbed slowly (5 years) back into squatting shape. Still have a brutally weak squat overall but B squats are one of the things I feel really helped me get confident going ATG and getting out of the bottom position., that and deadlifts off a box, snatch grip DL and other methods of deep DL (tiny plates et al.)

I too really appreciate Bryce's stuff and if fact have based most of my strength goals off of his arbitrary but still compelling thumbnail strength standards for little guys (belwo 220)

Whew... talk about hijack! Good to have you aboard.

Crap I'm too late I was about to post that exact same link! lol

He comes up on his toes on the rear leg. I find I don't have too as my flexibility doesn't limit me in any way. Also when my rear leg comes up on the toe I find the knee extension is a bit much for me anyways so I do it like any other squat, heels planted and it seems to work quite well. Though I must admit I don't do it much and when I do I could very well be doing it wrong.

Care to share some more thoughts on this Doc? Oh and my Dad has been slowly implementing your advice as per the blood clots. I appreciate the advice you gave.

Thanks for the great chart Dave! Just bookmarked it.

Know little about the B squat, but def plan to look further into it now. Makes much sense. Now that I think about it...thats the way I used to left up our beer kegs in college. Looks natural to say the least.
