I'm missing something, right? I've read Rippetoe and all that but for the life of me I can't figure out how these low-bar squats are supposed to work. Either: 1.

Then I committed a very minor troll, hoping to spur fond remembrances and advance a wistful discussion about the before time-- ...
Is Le Chateau still around?
