From Starting Strength, back to Crossfit. Low bar or High Bar Back Squat?

Just finished Starting Strength about a month ago, took about a week off and started CrossFit again. Just did a back squat workout today. Wondering if I should transition back to high bar back squat or if its ok to do low bar? I do plenty of front squatting.

Do whichever one you like. If doing front squats I would probably do LB, but that is me. Unless you have a specific training reason to do LB or HB I would say run with what you like.

Depends on your goals--do you want to keep pushing your squat numbers as high as possible, or do you want to get stronger to help you with Oly lifting?
