Squating with an Earthquake Bar should always be done sitting down onto a Box or Bench. Never attempt to Squat free-style because it is too unstable. This is the first of three videos showing how to load the Bar, perform the Box Squat movement and then how to progress to heavier weights. There is a learning curve of 3 to 4 workouts as your bio-motor network gets use to the forces acting on the body. Start with light-weight and take your time. Weight is not important at first – stability and balance is the key. Always have a Spotter on both sides of the Bar for safety!
