Front Squats

This is a variation of the traditional barbell squats. Instead of placing the bar on your shoulder blades, you lift the bar off a squat rack and then place it on your deltoids. You then cross your arms out in front of your chest whilst holding on to the bar.

Front squats have the following benefits:

  • Increased core strength
  • Less stress on lower back
  • Increased muscle mass in quads
  • More flexibility
