For 18 years, Bryan Boorstein hated back squats.
Boorstein, 35, owner and coach at San Diego Athletics, knew he should back squat to build strength and power, but he avoided the movement because it caused him knee pain.
Then he lowered the bar.
“I’ve been low-bar back squatting three times a week for 22 weeks with zero knee pain,” Boorstein says. “In fact, it’s gotten better.”
But how should you get started on it?
