    What’s up Joe and Bryce,

    Lately I’ve been struggling with some lower back pain w/ heel elevated ssb squats. I think I’m overextending but I’m tall and have long femurs (it’s an awkward looking squat honestly 😊)
    My first thought was to reassess my form and apply fixes where needed to correct this, but the pain is carrying over into other workouts. Pull especially with RDLs and bent over rows. Frankly, I feel if it’s affecting other things and holding me back, I should obviously do something else?

    I’m thinking about replacing a heel elevated ssb squat with a banded hack as my first meat and potatoes movement. Following up with a banded leg press, and then finally a leg extension to work the shortened position. Thoughts on that arrangement?
    It would be offset with hamstring stuff like the typical seated and lying leg curls.

    Hate to make this post like “hey Joe and Bryce can I do this or that?” Just want your opinion from an efficiency standpoint on loading the quads.

    Thanks!
