quite a few of you would have read my squat confessions thread and some great guys offered some awesome advice to me that i took onboard.
unfortunatly my perspective on the back squat chaged somewhat when i failed in a lift last saturday, no power rack at gym, landed on my bum with the weight on my shoulders and subsequently hurt my back.
so untill the gym puts in a powerrack id like to do front squats so if i fail the weight goes forwards and no one, including myself, gets hurt.
so what is the best grip to use for the front squat a snatch type grip or a crossover style and what kind of a weight should i try start off with as a percentage of the weight i was lifting previous to the arse on floor me screaming like a girl incident.
and is it worth chucking in a couple of sets of heavy legpress to make up for the reduced weight of the front squat.
look forward to your responses
