    Has anyone seen the full text of this article?

    My experience is that there is a considerable difference in feel between a cushioned sports shoe, an olympic weightlifting style shoe (with a hard midsole) and barefoot when back squatting. I wonder which style of shoe they used?

    Euan good insight. I recently began training again and find squats and deadlifts feel unnatural in my everyday training shoes. I plan on experimenting with hard midsole and cushioned soles but don't dare go barefoot ;)

    Best,

    Have tried all ways and purpose made weightlifting shoe with hard sole and slight wedge are by far and away the best for back squats

    I agree, I normally stick a 2x1inch lat of wood on the floor to riase my heels and find that gives me an increased ROM at the ankle..

    See some folk doing it bare foot at the gym too and there's alot of navicular drop and eversion involved and can't help but think it's not healthy..
    I wonder if there's a certain percentage of maximum weight repitition that would be advised for bare foot squatting.

    As someone who has done weightlifting years ago i nearly fell off my chair when i saw this post. i would never have attempted it barefoot for fear of slipping on the floor.
