Back squat is one of those exercises that is really easy to prescribe but doesn’t necessarily fit with everyone’s program. Though we should all have the ABILITY to perform heavy back squats, we don’t all necessarily need to use the back squat for training. If you’re one of those people then consider swapping for a different squat variation or use a machine like Hack squat or leg press. Our workout of the day is a long one that’s going to leave you drenched in sweat and no muscle left untouched.
