The upper back will always be the limiting factor in front squats (unless you have the quads of a 10 year old girl), nothing unusual about that. Do more front squats if you want to get better at them.[/quote]
I’ve front squatted 475 at a bodyweight of 200 lbs, just so you know I’m not talking about stuff I don’t know about. And what you’re saying is simply not true for many people. Most people’s form just sucks on front squats. [/quote]
The one I find myself guilty of a lot is trying to sit back too much and not keeping my elbows up.[/quote]
Mixed grip or strap grip for heavy sets, oly grip for warmups so you can still practice until it’s better.
Also, nothing wrong with sitting back, as long as the weight stays evenly distributed between the front/back of your feet.
