Barbell Front Squat

  • HOW: Place the barbell in the crease of your shoulders. Bend your elbows and place your hands palm up underneath the barbell. If you donโ€™t have the flexibility, you can simply use a few fingers as well. Or, you can switch to a different front rack position. 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 โ€œdumpโ€ the barbell forward, as it will roll off your shoulders!
