The Front Squat
The Front Squat: A front squat involves placing weight (bar or dumbbells) across the anterior deltoids or the front of your shoulders. If you don’t have a bar, you can do this will dumbbells held to your upper chest with your palms facing your body. This squat is performed the same as your Traditional Squat but with the weight held in front of you, at your chest. Be mindful to keep your chest lifted and shoulders back, since the front weight can tend to pull you forward. Remember that it is better to use less weight with proper form, than it is to sacrifice form to lift heavier weight.
