Your bar path is the fingerprint of your lift. Whether it be front, back, or overhead squats, the goal is to keep the bar balanced over the middle of your foot. A straight bar path indicates the lifter/barbell system is in balance and no extraneous effort was needed to complete the lift. Note the difference in bar path, body positions, and speed between these two reps. Follow @crossfitsouthbrooklyn on Instagram to get more of these pointers and tips!
