From 221 lb to 166 lb in 37 weeks. "When I began my powerlifting journey four years ago, I bought into the notion that I had to overeat in order to make progress in the weight room. One day while on vacation in Vietnam, I found myself shirtless on a beach. It hit me then that while I was bigger than everyone on the beach, I no longer looked like an athlete. Despite training hard and consistently, I had accumulated a significant amount of fat. It was at this point that I was lucky enough to be introduced to Hybrid Nutrition, and was assigned Vanessa Zingaro as my coach. I had never worked with a nutrition coach, and I had no idea what to expect in terms of a realistic and desirable outcome. For the past eight months, Vanessa has empowered me to change my life. Not only has she guided my nutrition, she has done so through some of the most difficult times in my life. Despite work and relationship stress, international traveling, family medical issues, and depression, she has taught me how to stay on target and crush my goals. To say that she is a competent coach would be a gross understatement: Vanessa sets the high standard that Hybrid Nutrition is known for. Thanks for getting me here Vanessa. I can't wait to see what we achieve in the years ahead!" - Nick Kucharski Start your Hybrid Nutrition program today by clicking the link in our bio!

HOW SHOULD YOU KEEP YOUR BACK WHEN DOING SQUATS? . When it comes to squatting, it is preferably to keep your lower back “Neutral” and not rotated (anteriorly or posteriorly). This can be easily explained with the “Bucket Analogy”. . Think about your pelvis as a bucket full of water. The idea is that you want to keep the water inside and NOT let it leak forward or backwards. If you excessively arch your back (anterior pelvic tilt) it might be more difficult for you to achieve proper depth, and you might lose tension at the bottom of the squat. . If you excessively bend your lower back (posterior pelvic tilt) you won’t be creating enough tension to begin with from your erectors. The water in the bucket will leak backwards. ❌ - Keeping the bucket neutral, therefore not letting the water leak out - or maybe just a liiiittle forward depending on the squatting style you’re using (I know low bar squatters will spam the comment section) - will make your squatting more efficient and allow you to move more and more weight ✅ - 🔥TAG somebody who needs to save his/her lower back when squatting!

“CHECK IN TIME for @hyb@hybridperformancemethod Nutrition. Stoked to report that I’ve consistently gained a few healthy lbs and this is actually the heaviest I’ve ever been. Consistently waking up around 127/128lb every morning and feeling damn good. The plan of this rehab/ off szn (however long it may last), is to gain muscle and size, prioritize recovery and focus on getting healthy. Back/glute rehab is going VERY well and I’m seeing bench progress as well so everything is headed in the right direction. Work outs have had more of a powerbuilding vibe to them and it’s been fun to see the small changes in my body. Ya girl is feeling thick for the first time in her life and I’m stoked on it. @hybridperformancemethod Nutriton y’all are the real MVP. 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼” - @bonschro Join Bonnie and the rest of the Hybrid Nutrition team today by clicking the link in our bio!

“Working with Greg has been such a great experience. I joined hybrid because of my really good friend that has been working with Greg. She would let me read her check-ins and I was always amazed by his thoughtfulness, kindness, realness, and passion that he spoke when writing back to his clients. I’ve counted macros before and I probably came into with a chip on my shoulder but Greg knocked it down very nicely. He pushed me when I needed it and let me relax when I thought I was going to pull my hair out. Greg has helped me achieve my goals and more. I now know I have the tools and resources to continue to stay happy and healthy and knowing that Greg is just an email away when I need to come back makes the future less scary. Thank you for everything!” - Tamari Bell Ward @tamaribward Start Hybrid Nutrition today by clicking the link in our bio!

High bar vs. Low bar squats — Differences in bar position between high-bar back squat (HBBS) and low-bar back squat (LBBS) result in an altered center of mass, requiring different movement strategies to maintain balance throughout the lift. These movement strategies manifest as differences in joint angles and resultant differences in muscle activation. — Bar position is not a clear cut dichotomy as shown above. There is certainly a spectrum of bar placement, but describing it as a “one vs. the other” makes comparison and generalizations a little easier. — As the bar moves further down the back in the LBBS, greater forward lean is required to maintain a balanced center of mass. In general, greater forward lean is defined by a smaller trunk angle, or increased hip flexion. The increase in forward lean maximizes posterior displacement of the hip and allows for greater activation of the posterior hip musculature (glutes and hamstrings) and erector spinae of the back. — In the HBBS, the trunk is able to stay more upright while still maintaining a balanced system. This creates a smaller knee angle (more flexion) and ankle angle (more dorsiflexion). There are some conflicting studies, but in general there appears to be greater activation of the anterior thigh musculature (quads) in the HBBS when compared to the LBBS. — In many instances (but certainly not always) lifters can lift a greater absolute load with the LBBS, hence its popularity in powerlifting. In contrast, the HBBS is more commonly used in weightlifting, as it more closely resembles the upright torso position found in the snatch and clean and jerk. — Practical Application: Training goals (anterior vs posterior chain development), sport specific requirements, joint range of motion limitations, and anthropometry should all be taken in to consideration when choosing HBBS vs. LBBS. — What’s your preference? And why?? .
