As the title says, what’s the best way to do this? For me anything over 225 is too much for my upper body even though my legs can handle it. I train similar to DC, so i’m a one set guy. What i’m planning to do is start with 185 for 5 reps. Next week i do 195 for 5, the week after i do 205 for 5 and so on. Should this work? Hopefully my upper body should get used to front squatting after a few weeks (it can’t be that weak haha).
Also, should front squats be trained with mostly low reps? Doing more than 5 reps feels counter productive with this exercise as my upper back and lungs give out before my legs do. I’m thinking 1-5 reps is the sweet spot for this lift.
