Front Squat Overview

The front squat is one of the best moves that help grow the muscle and build strength. You can see a great difference in the muscular size of your lower body while practicing this move. You have to hold the bar in front of your shoulder rather than the back of your neck.

The exercise engages your core as you have to maintain an upright posture throughout. It also works on your quads as it moves more of the load.

How to Do It

  • Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes pointed slightly outward.
  • Place a barbell across your shoulders, making sure that the bar is resting evenly across them.
  • Squat down slowly, keeping your back straight and your knees from going too far forward.
  • Once you reach the bottom of the squat, drive back up to the starting position.
  • Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Front Squat Tips

  • Make sure to warm up your wrists and fingers before doing the front squat. It will improve the flexibility of your wrists.
  • Make sure your knees don’t cross your toes when you’re bent in a squat position
  • Keep your core engaged throughout the exercise for better stability
