maybe there is a thread about this…maybe not. you can never have too many threads where people can talk about how much they love the front squat.
I, just like most trainees, started with the back squat. I still have a love affair with this lift. my butt and hammys scream yes but my quads say no. my quad development has been much better since I started to front squat.
yes, your ego might take a hit the first time you give them a shot but it will pay off in the long run. its just like any other lift in the sense that sometimes it takes a variation of a major lift to help you progress.
obviously I just finished a front squat session hence the feeling of love for this lift.
Who else loves the front squat? any tips? how was the transition between back squat and front squat? do you still back squat or did you switch over exclusively? shoes or no shoes? plates under your heels with a narrow stance (the quad squat).
show some love for the front squat
