Why I like to squat:
The reason I don’t believe in knee wraps, or belts:
It seems most people just do this out of fear. Fear of ‘hurting yourself’ (belt). Or fear of hurting your knees (knee wraps).
How chalk is useful
I like putting chalk on the hand grip area, and on the shoulder area (less likelihood of slippage). I also do the ‘back squat’ form, having the bar not directly on my neck, but a little further back. Also I use the ‘suicide grip’ (don’t use thumbs to grasp the bar).
