Here's the only one I could find that was EXACTLY how I did it. The only difference was that his was suspended (preferred) and mine rested on pins. I also didn't take much time getting set up like he did.

Thanks! Is there a general guideline to how long you should go? Hip height?

I saw that Eric mentioned the NYBB safety squat bar. I've heard it isn't as good as the EFTS SSB based on the fact that the bar will lay flat on the ground, vice the EFTS that has a different angle on the sleeves compared to the yoke. Any thoughts on that? I would like one too, but it would be several months before I could probably bring myself to buy the EFTS and could get the NYBB SSB now. Of course I would like top of the line quality, but frankly if all things are equal I would rather get my hands on a SSB now and feel some of the training effects on a budget if the difference isn't significant.

Same here. Plus I DO want to be able to get a cambered bar sooner rather than later as well.

No lower than parallel. Probably a few inches above would be best for regular GM's unless you need the erectors more involved. Suspended GM's I like low. No matter what, do the GM's in the rack with the pins set where you need them to be. Touch and go for regular GM's ensures you're consistant.
