How To Front Squat
- Set-up the same as if you are going to do a Military Press, with the bar set in your fingers and elbows in front of you 30-45 degrees.
- Your stance should be shoulder width or closer to allow for a full depth squat. You may point your toes out up to 30 degrees if needed to compensate for decreased mobility.
- In your squat stance, with the bar resting on your collarbones, ensure your entire body is tight as you take in a deep breath of air and press it down into your tightened abdomen, to create intra-abdominal pressure.
- Grasp the floor with your toes and create an external rotation torque throughout.
- Initiate the squat by breaking at the knees, pressing them out laterally past your ankles and descending into a full depth squat.
- To ascend, keep your knees out, flex your glutes and extend your legs while maintaining a neutral spine.
- Your torso should maintain a relatively vertical position throughout the lift.
