It’s very normal. Don’t sweat it. One reason is that the front squat has such different leverages, it’s why a bodyweight front squat is a pretty good achievement and a bodyweight back squat is relatively more beginner-level.
The Olympic lifters here (who generally front squat more often) seem to FS 80-90% their BS:
The powerlifters here (who generally back squat more often) seem to FS 70-90% their BS:
So, you’re pretty close to average. Stick with it.[/quote]
Good links. I still get surprised–and pissed off–when I see how close my FS is to my bench especially since my bench is so shitty.
