Squats for Tall People A Complete Set-up Guide — Tiger Fitness. Elite powerlifter Rob Merriweather shows tall squatters how to set up their hand and bar placement, foot width, and how to structure their assistance work. Rob Merriweather shows tall squatters how to set up their hand and bar placement, foot width, and how to structure their assistance work. First, you can start your squat from a seated position, Jack says. Simply sit down, and plant your feet on the floor.

From there, keep your chest up, knees out, and push down through the floor to stand up. Lower back down to the chair. If you have a knee issue that hurts when you squat, start from a seated position and push up just a couple inches. Set up before you squat: Find a foot stance that feels best for you.

Pointing your toes slightly outwards helps some, but keeping them parallel is fine, too. If you’re not sure what’s best, start by putting your feet shoulder-width apart and pointed about 15 degrees outwards. The knuckles should be facing the ceiling. Step back out of the rack and stand tall, keeping the weight close to the body. Next, the mechanics of the squat itself aren’t that different from typical squats.

If you’re someone who likes to break at the knees first, it may be a good idea to try more of a hip break during Zerchers. Sadly, this squat does not include a goblet full of wine. Instead, hold a kettlebell, dumbbell, or medicine ball at your sternum (the center of your chest).

With a. I recommend front squatting over back squatting because poor ankle mobility, long femurs, and a bar loaded on the back is a recipe for a squat that resembles a good morning. A front load can encourage a vertical torso position, which will help tall guys get the most out of their squat.

Open Chain Exercises Can Help You Get Huge. Related: Squats for Tall Lifters A Complete Set-up Guide Being tall can complicate an already complex lift, as our femurs are longer and leverages mechanically speaking, track in a manner, unlike our shorter counterparts. Therefore, technique and form are vital to successfully building the deadlift.

Squats: Front squat, back squat, box squat, and goblet squats. If you go with back squats, check out my article about common squat mistakes. Hip hinge: Trap-bar deadlift, conventional deadlift, sumo deadlift, and Romanian deadlift. Need a guide? I just so happen to have one handy.

If you want to do a form of squats, where you wrap the band around the back of your neck, just above your traps, and stand on the bottom of the band, then the blue band is good. If you have a set of 5, you can work up to the green and gray band as well for this type of exercise. The same applies to deadlifts. Presses, squats, dips, deadlifts, and pull ups make up just a few of the exercises you can use a power rack for.

If you only need something to hold the bar so you can set up properly for a squat, a full rack may be overkill for you.

List of related literature:

To make this exercise more effective, do the movements in a 4-count sequence1) step to side, keeping hips and shoulders square, 2) lower body into a squat, 3) stand, 4) drag non-lead leg in, placing feet together.

  • I’m 6’1” or about 186cm so I’m not THAT tall, but I do have a 193cm arm span. Always makes everything weird. Overall height and leg-length I’m right at the L frame size but imagine an orangutan or a gibbon riding a bike. Or doing anything. That’s me.

  • I’m 6’7″ and my dorsiflexion is pretty legit. I think it’s from bmx riding and basketball all those years. IDK. But, it definitely makes a difference. Once I got my hips opened up, I got immediately stronger.

  • Excellent
    Video thank you for the perspective

    Lots of different info regarding squats: jungle of info!

    Long femur and the bio machines are discussed enough!

  • I’m a lanky 6’8 and owned a XXL hardtail 29er for years. It worked but I felt cramped on climbs and top heavy downhill. I’ve recently switched to 36 inch wheels and there’s no looking back

  • Good video and I agree with your info. I am 6-4 and play around with stance and now have started wearing squatting shoes. I need to work on my ankle mobility as well..cool

  • My question/goal is “How can I fix my squat so that the bar is not tilted on my back and my feet are properly aligned? I want to have both legs doings 50% 50% of the load but my right leg is way stronger than my left. Also I noticed that even when I do my best to get the bar on my back straight and to align my feet properly, they fall back into the habitual old way which is the right foot is further up then the left foot and the bar starts to tilt to one side and veer of in a diagonal across my back…

  • Great and detailed video dude. I’m investing in a pair of Adipowers. I’ve had a lot of knee pain when squatting. I’m 6’5, I’ve started breaking at the hips to start the lift which has helped a little, and also invested in some knee sleeves. do you know any other things I can do to lessen the strain on my knees joints? I imagine the shoes will help.

  • Isn’t it the question more about the length of the legs (the femur) and arms (forearm) than the size of the person. Hafthor is tall but his legs are relatively small.
    In other words you have long leg spiders and dwarfs morphology. 😉

  • Thank you guys very helpful I got an argument with a group of girls lol going over exercises and I told them my squat would be different because I’m taller long legs I’m. 5ft 9 country build kind of girl thanks I’ll be starting my squats again

  • I’m 6’6″, 240 pounds, long longs, and super stiff ankles from years of basketball injuries.

    I feel like I should dial 9-1-1 before I begin each squat.

  • Awesome video Mike, very valuable content for me because I´m also very tall and have problems with the big3 lifts regarding my longe femurs. Please please please make other videos how to bench correctly with long arms (what foot position, tucked or in front, is it ok when my elbows are below the pad even if I´m in an arched postition etc.) and what type of deadlift is better for tall athletes, sumo or conventional!? That would be awesome!!! Thank you very much for sharing so much informative content!!! I appreciate your work!

  • sorry mike..but that was not very helpful, I’am 50 years old.I bench 130 kg.but my squat is 110 kg,I’am 185 cm,with a very long torso and arms,I can’t seem to improve on my squat..any ideas.

  • Yeah I’m 6’4″ as well and I can see a lot of my earlier self in his squat. I find that a slightly wider stance with knees going out helps me a lot, similar to a wider grip bench press for my long ass arms.

  • Great vid mate. I bought a Kona Remote Ctrl (2019) 510 reach, 485 chain stays, 1327 wheelbase. at 196cm this bike, being sized right for me, has changed my whole riding experience. Yes its a E Bike but size is size and my previous E bike a Merida was just too short.

  • I LOVE YOU JUSTIS. I’ve got long femurs and this was just the perfect video. That bar path is sublime. Looks like I’ll have to bite the bullet and just invest in some weightlifting shoes.

  • Just a clarification in order to avoid further confusion. Most of this videos are actually either LOW bar, or HYBRID squat except the video on 05:00 which is the ONLY high bar example in the video. If you didn’t know that well, now you know. That was all I had at the time of making this video. Will post high bar in the future no problem, with bigger weights also not just 125kg lol.

  • To all the true tall guys over 6’6” please give Critical bench a look on on here on squatting; he’s 6’7” and it applies to true tall guys.

    This guy is not tall enough to be teaching this to taller guys at 6’3”, long femurs or not he’s got like a 34 inch leg. My legs are 38 at 6’9”.

    Taller guys don’t do it man.

  • i’m 6 ft 2 and have longe legs and short torso. When I want to squat deep, my back is almost parallel to the ground which is terrible. This video is very good and helped me,
    to fix my problem, i try to get more ankle dorsi flection by strechting and i try to open my hip mobility too. and these squat shoes really help…
    good video bro…:D

  • I’m 5’9”, but I have long ass femurs. Squats shoes immediately changed my mechanics. I find front squats aren’t an issue with long femurs.

  • I’m 6`4″, 195lbs. Never managed to squat more than 205 because my knees started to fail, definitely going to give it another shot after finding this video. Thanks.

  • Really excellent information. I wish i had seen this video 2 Years ago I was reluctant to buy a 29er bike because i thought it would be to sluggish and not very agile. I still like my 27.5 (Propain Tyee) though, but i swapped the Damper for one with lockout due to annoying squat and back pain, and that seems to work So I did the right thing according to Doddy in this case!

  • Some people just are not built for squatting plain and simple. Its no big deal. The need to focus on leg presses, hacks squats etc. Just because someone cant squat isnt the end of the world. Plenty of other ways to skin a cat.

  • Cool I’m 6 foot 1 and my legs are super long and I notice when I do squat wide and hit depth I dont feel it in my quads that much. I started using a machine squat and I noticed when I do partial reps I feel it alot more in my quads then I do going all the way down. But then I notice I dojt get much stimulation in the hamstrings. So what exercises would be good for tall guys to develop overall legs

  • Thank you for this video! Most helpful one I have seen on the subject. Answered so many of my questions!! Love GMBN in general. Thank you!

  • Your dialogue shows that you’ve studied this phenomena considerably. However, I still get the impression you’re seeing something wrong that can be fixed. While I would agree, anyone can improve their squat with focus and practice, you can only go so far before your mobility becomes you limiting factor. You can never quite equal the most vertical squat from someone shorter all things equal.

    The cause of this is simple, look at it like placing a heavy weight on a wall or a poll. It can only go so high before it starts to bend. If you want to go higher and stay completely stable, you’re going to have to increase its width considerably, particularly at it’s base or add in internal support. Hope you’re still working out? We need a follow up.

  • Znaci buraz svo ovo vrijeme te pratim i kontam da si njemac ili rus hahahh
    Svaka cast fino si jak za nekoga ko nije na hemiji,samo guraj!

  • You closed a debate between me and my boyfriend. I have long legs and shirt torso and for a woman taller than average… I struggled with balance my weight shifts between heels and front of my feet. I also bow down and I know its not the “heaviness”. I did a few streches and I broke parallel! So thank you.

  • Great video! I remember watching this a year ago and since then I’ve gone from a 265 lb crap half rep squat to a 395 lb squat with solid form. No pinch in the hips as well, given that I warmup properly

  • I have long femurs, a short torso, long arms, and narrow hips. Awesome for deadlifts, not so much for squats. I do band work and use assistance exercises to work on hip adductor/abductor strength and back extensions to strengthen hip drive and my lower back. I do low bar squats with a hip width stance and heeled squat shoes. That’s what I’ve found works for me. Low bar placement combined with heeled squat shoes helps maintain balance within the moment arm of the femurs, while increasing depth and mobility without compromising the back. I use a hip width stance to allow for more recruitment of power from my longer posterior chain muscles to increase drive speed out of the hole, rather than relying on decreased squat distance and the hip extensors for drive. Longer femurs require more support from the hip muscles to maintain stability, thereby decreasing the amount of power they can provide for upward drive. Try using your anatomy to your advantage, rather than forcing it to work in a way it’s not designed for. I guarantee you’ll get results. Great video!! ����

  • I wish this was made two years ago as it answers so many of the questions I had about buying a bike. I’m tempted to sell my current steed to fund s more appropriate bike. I’m nearly exactly the same height, weight, ape index as Doddy so this advice is invaluable to me as I don’t have years of riding experience behind me and access to the variety of kit. Thanks Doddy.

  • 183cm with long femur too, thank for the concept of your channel, the subject of tall lifter is not very popular, a big thanks you from France 😉

  • 6’6″/198cm have both 27.5 and 29 and so far the smaller wheel is more to my liking for handling but the 29 is prob faster and rolls up and over things better. Not sure I even know what a proper fitting bike feels like yet!

  • I’m just under 5’11” with 37″ inseam…. EVERYONE tries to tell me I squat wrong. I have to lean forward more or I’ll just fall over backward. It’s frustrating.

  • Really nice video. I used to get so frustrated with myself doing squats with long legs. I never thought I could get down the technique but this video helped a lot. I needed to work on mobility first

  • Konacno neko da napravi ovakav video, imam slican problem, visok sam i trenirao sam prije kosarku, sada ne mogu da se spustim dovoljno, cak ni 90 stepeni a kamoli do poda (ako su pete na zemlji kao sto treba). Ako krenem da se spustim do kraja, cak i sa samom sipkom, gubim balans i hocu da padnem nazad. Jedini nacin da cucnem duboko je ako se savijem u ledjima i dignem na prste, ali onda osjetim ogroman pritisak na ledja i znam da forma nije uredu, malo fali da me tezina prevali naprijed. Tako da, godinama izbjegavam cucanj i radim neke vjezbe tipa cucanj na spravi ili presu, i nisu ni to lose vjezbe ali nije to to… Nista ne moze zamijeniti cucanj, benc i odvajanje. Mozda koristeci tvoje savjete uspijem omeksati clanke i popraviti formu:/

  • I have long legs and arms for my height. My bench press sucks but man my sumo deadlifts are amazing lol. I cant do rear loaded squats so I have been doing front squats. I might try to give rear loaded a try again and set myself up almost like a front squat.
    Edit: Medium squat if I am able to

  • Getting in the right depth is no problem for me anymore. I can basically sit on the floor. The problem I experience as a decently tall guy, is the tipping forward about mid-way up. Sure since my upper leg is so long, I’m gonna have bad angles and bad leverage due to it, thus rendering my highbar OL squat weak… I´ve been searching for a way to squat big weights without looking like a taco, cuz honestly in that case I Might just focus on the deadlift and skip the squat.

    Further more what´s interesting is that I noticed the hacksquat and legpress machines give me MORE leg strength than doing squats! Mainly because (just as you) I tend to slightly bend the weight up with my back when the butt is passin the height of your knees.

  • Man I can’t figure out why I can’t do this… I’m 6′ but have long limbs/short torso. My squat form is horrendous, I can’t seem to open my hips wide enough and have to have a really wide stance to get depth, but even at this point my lower back rounds at the bottom of the squat. Any tips would be greatly appreciated

  • Thanks guys. I’ve been looking through all “Squatting for tall people” videos, some of those bodybuilder dudes there are just ridiculous. I am 6ft5 and in the gym I sometimes get “corrected” by trainers about the fact that my squat looks different, and they cant understand that it’s mechanics.
    tall guy bro fist to you guys.

  • good vid I avoid the good morning rise up…also you do not need to go atg not necessary at all squat as deep as your mobility allows. around parallel is fine I also am a tall guy so going all the way down rounds the lower back for me and then consequently the good morning shelf happens on the way up I choose more of the platz squat

  • Bro, please do a video on deadlift! 194cm here and the bar always seems to be leaving my body putting a lot of stress on my lower back.. damn Balkan genetics and shitty leverages! Poz iz Oxforda

  • Really awesome video and explanations. Thank you very much. I’m six foot btw and 45 years old so flexibility and mobility around the hips and ankles need work. Investing in some shoes will be good

  • I’m a 5’5 midget with unusually long femur and when I squat lowbar I end up leaning forward too much to try to break parallel which causes my back to round. Is this due to ankle and hip mobility? Is squatting wider an option or will this put me in a disadvantage?

  • do you think I should just give up the battle trying to be perfectly upright? I’ve got really good ankle and hip mobility, but have the long fermur issue, and no matter how much I tweak my technique I cannot get myself to be completely vertical. Front squats on the other hand is quite easy to stay almost nearly vertical.

  • What was the best way you fixed ankle mobility, i have terrible ankle mobility and even with the highest squat shoes with all the ankle injuries it still sucks.

  • Definitely need to work more on my hips to feel more comfortable and stable good tips!

    Good job on your own progress in weight and technique 😉 I bet you’re working on it already, but try to keep your knees a bit longer in position as you ascend ( i also have the habit to be lazy sometimes and let my back do more and more work in the squat as it gets heavier xD)
    Cheers!

  • At least your lower legs are still close in length to your femur. I’m almost 6’1, and I feel like my femur may be close to your’s in length, but by lower leg is at least three inches shorter than my femur, so it’s awkward to get parallel because of balance.

  • Terrible form on your squats. You lean forward WAY TOO much on your way up. Terrible for your back. Your spine is loaded during the BB squat. Bending forward like that puts an immense amount of pressure on your discs. One rep like that can cause a bulge or herniated disc and you’ll have that injury for the rest of your life.

  • 6’8” and considering the current situation I have two options: the SPECIALIZED Rockhopper hard tail (XL frame) 29er or the GIANT Stance 29er (XXL frame). What do y’all think?

  • Maybe go over all main lifts and accessory lifts for tall lifters. I could see this turning into a series where you break down each lift based on where tall lifters could improve on.

  • nice video… but why not use the safety bar all the time? Whether injured or not? The trainer already admitted that putting hands on the bar puts a lot of torque on the shoulders… which I can attest to, and while I haven’t had previous shoulder injury, I did have a slight pec injury, because with my long arms, my hand position has to be wide on the bar.

    I got Dave Draper’s squat bar and it’s been a Godsend.

    If you’re an athlete who wants to build legs, why put other parts of your body at risk?

  • Thanks I’m a tall female 5 ft 9 country build I thought I was doing my squats wrong but as a tall person our bodies will be positioned differently I’m not pushing big weights just my body weight but I did learn something thanks great video

  • Can you help me? Im a girl, im not tall but i have long legs and a heavy short torso. I want to squat for glute growth but for the life of me i cant.Whenever I squat even a half squat I fall backwards instantly.And i lean forward alot. Leaning forward is the only way i can squat without falling backwards. Also my knees tend to pass my toes. If i pull back a bit, on my ass i go. And as I start to go down my toes also start to go up they refuse to stay flat. You know how people squat down to pick something up, where their thighs come against their calves but yet they keep their feet completely flat on the floor? Yeah i cant do that. I would have to be on my tippy toes. How can i correct this?

  • all the comments saying brrooo your so lucky,i have to lean so far forward STFU no you dont,you probably didnt even try to fix your form and spend time correctly and thats why you look that way when you fkn squat. Take this video and relearn until you for real squat that way.

  • Most informative video on the subject. Thanks for sharing your journey! Trying to get correct squat depth has been very discouraging, but the info u shared has given me a bit more hope. 6’6 and barely hitting parallel

  • Hey, I’m a really tall guy (2m+) and when i’m squating I experience a lot of knee pain, I stopped squating for a month, started squating again and within 3 weeks the pain was back… Currently I bench more than I squat, and everytime I try to squat the knee pain returns, which is highly demotivating, the weight I squat with is really light as well, around 135 pounds. Do you guys have any tips involving knee pain while squating? Thanks!

  • Thanks Doddy. Beautiful bike! Riding Santa Cruz hightower lt XXL. Lot of pedal strikes, but faster than on my 27.5 XL + bike which has 170mm cranks. It’s fast too, and fun! but feels like more work to climb on those shorter cranks.. I’ve been using riser bars for a better seated and standing position. Not sure if it helps or hinders on tech or jumps

  • I haven’t watched your other videos but with regards to depth, in addition to ankle mobility, hip joint anatomy may play a big part in sometimes ability to reach depth,(I’m sure you’ll know), may be a good vid to build on this one.

  • I’m 6″4, flat feet, long femurs, long torso.. Took me forever to learn my form… for me I gotta use a very close stance with my feet pointed straight. Wide foot stance doesn’t feel good at all.

  • What do you think about taking a wider stance for tall guys? I’ve seen a lot of people do it, but every time I try it hurts my hips as go below parallel.

  • hey man, i have a question, im not a tall person and i dont have long femurs (170 cm/5 7″) but i for me squatting (oly style) is hard because i cant keep the upright trunk. other than ankle mobility, are there any other things i should do?

    and what was your squat progress in your first year???
    thankss

  • Long legs are good for kicks though and also looks more aesthetic. Look at bodybuilders like Kai and Arnold. This is common in African Americans mostly or all Africans.

  • I’m 15 and 6,2 I can’t do it but my brother who is the same height but 23 can, he just tells me I’m not Slav enough to do the squat which doesn’t help that much, but this video helped me a bit

  • Your knees are going way over your toes. I have long femur problem and ankles mobility affect short people just as much as taller people. If you have long femur, you want to spread more your legs and point your feet outside, and ALWAYS squat with a low bar, high bar is only for 1 rep powerlifter and it’s dangerous. Instead of weightlifting shoes, i put a small plank under my heels to elevate myself gives the same results.

  • So why not shorter rider set ups?? Because if your under 5.8’ then you just deal with bikes not good for short riders! Almost want to make my own bike company called “fktallfolks” bikes

  • Good video for tall people, obviously. I’m 6’1″

    You should do a video about sizing and setup on the other end of the spectrum as well. Short People. My wife is 4’10” and we have been slowly getting her bike more comfortable for her. I just finished modifying a reverb dropper post to 65mm travel because most everything I found was too long. And short drop is probably better than no drop.

    You can talk about things like stand over height, compensating for reach that may be a tad too long, how wide is too wide for bars, who makes short droppers, etc…

  • I have super flexible ancles BUT squatting is pain in the ass still. I even have pretty short femurs aaand I use romaleos… fuk ma lyfe:((
