    Any of you do zercher squats? any benefits? or just a different variation

    Can't go as heavy as back squats, but they felt real good going low today.

    They will make a man out of you.


    Zerchers are great for hitting the quads and core work.

    I think they're pretty much useless for most people

    as I recall, they're designed to be done off the floor since the dude who invented them was in prison and needed a way to do them without a squat rack or some shit

    My forearms get destroyed but it gives a leg good pump.
    My gym as a fat bar so that helps w/ the arms a little.
