    Hey guys — After only doing hacks and smith squats for the past couple years, I recently swapped/rotated in heel elevated safety squats (new gym/equipment.. didn’t have safety bar before)

    Im surprised by soreness not just in my quads (expected) but also my erectors/mid back (not expected)

    Could this be an indication that something in form is off, or could it be just re-learning the pattern after a long period of only squatting with machines?

    I had a similar thing happen to me when I first started doing heel elevated SSB squats, until I recorded my form and saw how much the weight was coming forward as I dropped into the squat. Once I pulled the load back a little and reset the form to create a straighter bar path I stopped having the problem.
