High bar back squat
3×5 @85% of regular Back Squat 1RM
*Rest 3:30 between sets*

Big difference between a low bar and a high bar back squat is with high bar, you really focus on keeping your torso as upright as you can, similar to a front squat.  Obviously, this will take the stress away from the posterior chain, putting more emphasis on the quads. So why would we do this? Simple, the technique transfers over to lifts such as front squats, thrusters, full squat cleans.  We are helping strengthen those positions while still getting your body control better for squats.
