I recently bought a SSB bar for my home gym. I've watched a lot of people describe the benefits, one being salvation for the shoulders, and that sold me right there. Today was my first usage of it, and I noticed right off that my working sets for the SSB were way less than standard bar squats. So my questions are: 1. Is it normal for your SSB numbers to be lower than standard squats? 2. How do you get tight before descent? I was having lots of problems with that as it felt like I couldn't engage my lats and core. 3. Should you go to depth? 4. Does anyone have any cues for set up etc?
