Hi, I recently injured my left glute (I feel slight pain, it doesnt limit me anyhow, but at certain position, it is more sensitive and my squat dropped a little bit), so I switched to front squats for a while. I can hold 200kg/440lbs) easy in low bar position, but when I put 315 on the front squat, it is crushing my core so much that I cant even look down on my feet if they are set right.
Squatting itself is way easier and more comfortable than low bar squatting, but my core just can’t handle it lol. I am not looking for a solution because I guess it’s only about getting used to it, but why the huge difference? Putting 225 in low bar position feels like I have nothing on my back, putting it in front squat position feels heavy and it is very hard to even walk out (Low bar = could almost run). Anyone can explain?
