Different strokes for different folks. I prefer high-bar, ass-to-grass squats. If you’re not used to doing full squats, you can use chains to lighten the load at the bottom.
Here I’m doing full squats with 185 pounds on the bar and 140 pounds of chains. At the bottom there’s roughly half the weight left on the chains, so the total load drops from 325 pounds at the top down to 255 pounds at the bottom.
