Traditional Squat: Alt. for Front Squat?

Hey guys,

I was wondering, is the traditional squat a good alternative for the barbell front squat? I tried the barbell front squat and failed miserably due to weak wrists. Does it make a difference if I change my squat workout in this manner?

Thanks for your input.

This is a serious question man, if you cant answer with a proper answer dont post.

How are you holding the bar when you front squat? It sounds like you’re doing them with an Oly grip. If so, try the wrists-crossed method. If that still doesn’t work, the backsquat can be a substitute, but it won’t get you as much quad involvement.

And lighten up. It’s not like he insulted you or anything.

I love it when new people think they can dictate how these forums should operate.

This question should have been posted in the beginners section. You’d get a more serious answer there considering the question you asked.

Can you use back squats instead of front squats? Until you figure out how to front squat, yes.

You’re talking about doing a cycle in the Steroids forum, but you honestly didn’t know the answer to this? I think you better reconsidering doing that cycle.

Yeah, this is why I responded like this, because I knew he would get blasted for posting in the bodybuilding section. Didn’t we just have this with the squats vs. leg press thread? I thought it may smell of a troll job.

AVader - Can you do a Force Choke through the Internet? Can you do that on dail-up, or do you need large bandwidth for all that dark forcey stuff?

I heard David Copperfield can do small illusions, like make kittens disappear over dial-up, but we’re not talking Force Choke there…

I can usually do it over dial-up, but I need to know what the person looks like to help me visualize the choke better. Basically all you guys with with genuine avatar/profile pics or have posted pics elsewhere on the forums are the ones I’ll have an easier time choking.

I can do it without knowing was you look like, but for that you happen, you really need to anger me, so that the hate is really flowing through me.

You do know that Vader doesn’t actually have the power to choke people out. He just thought he did. But everyone played along with it.
