Barbell Front Squat with Modified Front Rack

  • HOW: Place the barbell in the crease of your shoulders. Bend your elbows and place your hands on top of your shoulders, keeping the barbell in place so it feels secure. Once you feel the barbell is stable, descend into a normal front squat pattern.
  • FEEL: You should feel your legs working, but even more so your quadriceps muscles working.
  • COMPENSATION: Keep your torso upright. Do not lean forward too much and “dump” the barbell forward, as it will roll off your shoulders!
