Well, my safety squat bar arrived. But the landmine attachment did not. The shop told me that both pieces would be shipped together, although the estimated shipping for the squat bar alone was 2 weeks shorter.

Well, guess now I get two shipments anyway with an even longer shipment. At least the bar is here and not just the attachment. 🤷‍♂️

No pictures, but two videos of my first squats. Definitely a different variation. For me it's more like a front squat, but I guess I have to play with positioning a bit more.

@cringe looks pretty good to me, though I haven't used a SSB much. Only tip I ever got for then is to push up slightly on the bar as you descend. So the handles are close to parallel to the floor at the bottom of the squat.

I started doing that on my 2nd or 3rd set. I'm curious if I feel it in my back tomorrow. 🙃 Feels like front squat DOMS at the moment.
