Deload Squats - Learning High Bar

Deloading. Decided to play with high bar squats for a changed. Guessed they'd be 10% less than my low bar so about 475 for a 1RM but I haven't tested it. These chewed up a new spot on the back and took a bit to feel stable. Also was something different for figuring out depth.

Use 5x2r at 80% or 5x3r at 70% for deloading. Light enough to not be stressful but enough work that a guy shouldn't regress.
