    Question Can i do very narrow squats ?

    Hello, i have a question. I always did squats with toes slightly to the sides and stance shoulder-width. Last week, i tried really narrow squats, with toes pointing straight and no space between legs, like really narrow squats and i really liked it, i felt good with that position, but i rarely see anyone doing squats with that stance.

    So my question is -> can i do those narrow squats normally, will it develop my legs like normal shoulder-width squats if ill be progressing ? Thanks

    Do you get the same ROM and loading capacity from narrow vs regular width? Probably not, so stop.

    If anyone thinks narrow squats with half the load and 2/3 the ROM will build "better sweep", DM me so I can sell you a waist trainer and herbal supps lolol

    For bodybuilding the narrow stance squat is a good one for the outer(sweep)of the quads.
    The issue with very close stance is balance and stability with a free bar.
    These are better done IMO with a leg type machine,hack squat,leg press or smith machine.
    No balance required and you can focus on working quads.
    I would though still do some different stance work in your training,it balances things out for better all around leg look.

    Off topic, but do you still prefer hack squats to regular?

    I think it is completely fine to do them narrow if they feel good. Nothing wrong with adding in squat variations.
