    Low Bar height??

    I'm wondering how high you have the low bar. I'm 15, 5'2" and a level 8/9. I have issues with keeping my feet up on my counters. My low bar is so low right now that i can't even swing on it with my knees bent because they hit the ground. Is that bad? So, where do you have your low bar?
