Why you should do front squats...
Or at least consider doing them!
Front squats may look intimidating, but in some ways they are easier than back squats. Especially if you're tall like me!
Because you hold the bar directly over the center of gravity in your body, it's easier to stay upright, sink lower into the bottom of the squat and push from the heels and middle of your foot.
Doing front squats not only puts much more focus on the quads and can take tremendous pressure away from your lower back, but it can also develop your Abs! Holding the rack position and maintaining an upright torso can help build thick, visible, blocky abs that really POP!
