I’ve been doing front squats for about 5 weeks now to try and help w/ hang cleaning…but since its a lift that isn’t as common I’m not sure what is good, like I am for a back squat. I now can front squat 185 at 4 reps…for a back squat I know that’s not very good, but how good is it for a front, since front is a lot harder? Also, i wonder how much I should expect my hang clean to improve?
See, the last time I cleaned I fell, and injured my back…now that I’m healed, I want to try a max again, but am worried about falling if I attempt to flip too much…my front squat has actually gone up 65 lbs since I started, at the time I could clean roughly 205…I have not been doing cleans…would front squats by themselves make a clean improve? Could I expect an improvement of say 20 or 30 lbs if my front squat has improved by 65?
