I’m performing classic back squat since 3 years and I feel I did not get a lot from it. I doing front squat since a month. At first, I found it weird to perform and was not really comfortable doing the movement and was thinking to stop it, but did not.
Once I did learn to perform it correctly, I would say that mechanically, front squat are better suited for me than regular squat. I can use about the same weight with front squat now that with back squat.
While I can go ass to the floor and feel the movement very naturally with fS, I was not able to go bellow parallel (even higher) with back squat when trying to lift heavy.
I think I should had tried it before. I invite tall people to tried it if they feel regular squat are not doing much for them.
