The Front Squat

The Front Squat

The Front Squat is a progression of the bodyweight squat that we went over before. Its a great full body exercise and especially good for your legs, thighs and butt!

You’re gonna start out with your feet shoulder width apart. If you need a reminder on squatting cues, look for them here.

The only real difference from the bodyweight squat is that you’re going to add weight. And the weight is going to be added to the front of your body, thus the name Front Squat. And hold the weight right under your chin, near your collar bone. Start out light and then work your way up.

The cool thing about the Front Squat is that because of the placement of the weight, it will be easier for your back to be in a correct position and for your weight to be evenly distributed between the balls of your feet and your heels. All good things!happy emoji

Try out 3 sets with 10 reps in each set.

If you have any questions lemme know.

And remember:

In order to achieve something you’ve never done before, you must be willing to become somebody you’ve never been before
