Barbell Exercise: Front Squat
September 25, 2014 Updated May 17, 2016
The Barbell Front Squat is an awesome strength developing drill that places high demand not only on your legs but also your upper back, shoulders and core to maintain position. Along with all the strength development this squat variant offers it also encourages a more vertical spinal alignment than a traditional back squat.
Step 1: Set up the loaded barbell at slightly lower than shoulder height in a rack
Step 2: Walk into the bar grasping it with both hands and driving your elbows under and forward
Step 3: Stand with the bar and step back to clear the rack
Step 4: Squat down keeping your chest and elbows high with a vertical spinal alignment
Step 5: Stand back up and repeat.
Tips and Safety: Take a wider grip on the barbell than you might want to. This will decrease the strain on the wrists and assist in keeping the elbows high.
