Same here, strength is still number one. I'm going to keep bulking from 193 - 200 in the next 10 weeks and do a mini meet, hopefully hit 400 squat 435-450 deadlift and be happy enough with that. I think at that point I can cut without feeling guilty and will probably hire someone to cut down to 185 and hopefully maintain my #s. My programming will have to change too and will probably hire someone for programming during cut, can't lift like I am now on a caloric deficit.

It's just not bar placement. To keep the bar over mid foot, the technique has to change. Knee travel, forward lean and how much you sit back are all different in the two types.

Picture the typical low bar squat. Just breaking parallel, sitting back and almost completely vertical shins. Decent forward lean of the torso with the bar placed on his rear delts.

If he's going to drop his ass to the ground, the lower back has to round severely. There's no way you can go ATG with vertical shins, sitting back and with some forward lean (how most people low bar squat).

If your form more looks like Charlys (upright torso), it might be possible, but then you'd have to go with an even wider stance than he does, and his feet are already up by the sides in the power cage. It would be like a chinese split.

And yeah, I believe hamstring receuitment is bigger low bar. The stretch reflex is greatest with vertical chins and just breaking parallel, not deeper, IIRC.
