Can any of you break this down? I've recently started using one & love it. However, I'm way more sore in my glutes & hamstrings than with a regular back squat. I feel like I'm standing straight up a bit more due to the shape of the the bar & how it distributes the weight differently. Thoughts & answers please

While I cant give you any scientific info; I use only this bar since my shoulders are banged up. But I know Wendler says "it makes your back strong like bull'. And I would tend to agree, since it pushes you forwrded and your torso has to compenstate.

Cunt bar wants to dump you forward, especially at the bottom so you need to use more upper back, glutes and hams to keep you upright.

Being that Dave Tate invented the bar he's probably a pretty good resource to start with...
