Overview

The highbar squat is a compound exercise that targets the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves. It is also an effective exercise for building core strength and stability. To perform a highbar squat, start with your feet shoulder-width apart and a barbell resting across your upper back. Slowly lower yourself down until your thighs are parallel to the floor, then push yourself back up to the starting position. Keep your chest up and your core engaged throughout the movement. The highbar squat is a challenging exercise, but it is also one of the most effective exercises for building lowerbody strength.
