Front Squatting Setup:
[quote]…But as for tips, setup is everything practically.
Move up to the bar, with feet about shoulder width or a bit wider, and place the bottom of your neck/top of your chest up against it firmly. Stick your arms out as far as possible under it, as if you’re trying to reach out for something that you just BARELY can’t reach, this brings you in tight to the bar, and helps to properly position it on/almost behind your shoulders. You should have a slightly uncomfortable pressure in your neck/windpipe at this point, don’t worry, that’s normal.
Now, grab the bar, with hands grasping the bar pretty much at your neck, maybe a few inches apart. Take a deep breath into your belly, and lift off, staying tight throughout your whole body. Get into position to squat, with each foot about 4-6" wider than shoulder width. Point feet/toes approximately at a 45 degree angle outwards.
Start by sitting BACK, not down, or else your weight will end up on your toes…not good. This will cause the bar to roll forward, and you to lose tightness and optimal leverages. As you squat back, take as much air into your belly as possible, creating all the pressure that you possibly can…you’ll need it to get out of the hole properly. Push your knees as far apart as possible, once again, for best leverage possible, and to keep them from buckling inward. As you start to push up, don’t fall forwards, hold that belly full of breath until you lock out, and keep the knees pushed out. These all help you get past the sticking point.
Any questions, I’m always more than happy to help where I can. [/quote]
omg beb i new this wud heppen!! (how did I do that time)
Anyway, I don’t think you’d have to sit back that far if you narrowed the stance up a bit Hungry, but you already know how I feel about that
