Is how much you lift more important than how intense it feels?
A front squat feels more intense in the quads because most of the weight is stressing them. The load is much smaller than what can be lifted with a back squat though.
A power lifting back squat feels less intense in the quads but it allows for more weight to be lifted because the stress is spread more evenly over the quads glutes hams and back etc
My question is will you get stronger quads by doing front squats than you will by doing back squats?
