    Has anyone used one of these?

    I'm gonna pick one up and was curious if anyone here has experience with one. Clean grip, cross armed, and using straps don't work for me.

    Old gym had one, it was something I used from time to time. It's a little different than up on my shoulders but if I had extra money and wanted to diversify my approach to squats, I'd get one.

    I'm coming up with a plan to improve my back squat over the next few months. Hit deadlift pretty hard this year and my squat is definitely lacking. This harness is kind of expensive, but this is an expensive hobby.

  4. Personally, I hated it. I also hate front squats. But if rather do them across my shoulders than use the harness. I just did not feel secure with it on. I did however like it for zerchers

    I can't seem to hold more than low 300's on front squats. With clean grip my right hand slips out, with cross armed I can't keep my elbows high enough and I drop it, and with straps it just doesn't work for some reason.
     
  6. Have you tried SSB front squats?

    They seem about the same as SSB back squats. Weight still centered.
