    Pin squats are a thing, but normally you will set the pins a little below your sticking point. So it is sort of like a paused squat from a height above parallel, but not 6" from lockout. I don't think you would get much out of 6" front squats (for squats at least), but you would really load your upper back up isometrically I guess.

    I wish I had recorded this for everyone. Last night a young woman was in the power rack with the bar in a high-bar position. But she was on her knees in an upright kneeling position. She then proceeded to do what looked like a squat with the upper half of her body, dropping down into a near face-down position where I guess she was supplicating to the squat gods for the travesty she was performing.

    "I'm not worthy"

    Damn right!!

    Had a funny situations today. While I was doing my first warmup on DL with 1 plate per side I heard one of the personal trainers saying "that's how you deadlift if you wanna snap your spine". I didn't see him but recognized the guy by voice. When I was done I was looking around to get eye contact with him (he was quite a few metres away from me). When I finally did I asked "Did you say something?" (not literally but I can't find a better translation, it was somewhat of a slang term with a taunting, provocative meaning). Having heard him for the rest of my session.

    When heading to the locker room he was at this PT stand and I really tried hard to get eye contact with him, unsuccesfully since he was avoiding it.

    This was probably some form of a good morning.
