He puts his heels on a high platform and makes a weird 'Limbo move' on the bottom ("sit back, push back out"). Well, he calls it a sissy squat, LOL
Has anyone tried this? Won't this fucked up your knees and hips?

Action starts around 1:10

With some weights on the bar. He starts with the same technique and ends with a regular version (i.e. no 'Limbo swing')

Creative way to imitate a squat bar.

I really can't see benefit of this. The front squats hits the quads very well, I have no idea why he would come up with something like this.

Mr Curry is isolating the quads the best he can with this movement and probably better than most. Imagine the burn involved; anyone who experiments with this should find out right away.. Most BB'ers will just hold a plate high, in front of the chest when doing the original Sissy Squat. (I don't follow BB'ing, so haven't a clue who Mr. Curry is or was) Sissy squats can give an unbelievible stretch to the quads. Track athlete's use a form of this; warmup and general training. As do most other athletes.

That limbo move is a modified "S" curve. Front and regular squats pretty much follow the same pattern. Olympic lifters will usually squat from a rock bottom position, BB'ers..not so much. Olympic lifters have higher heels in their lifting shoes/boots, for better balance and a more solid postion. Very handy when squat cleaning 500+.

Some White Papers suggess less knee problems with full squats, than half squats (little below parrell). Than again, a few say the opposite. If having a potential for bad or weak knees, than raised heels squats, or even Sissy Squats, may not be for you. Your choice. Good Luck.
