JH Quick Tip #8 Front Squat

JH Quick Tip #8 Front Squat

Performing front squats with a conventional Olympic grip can be painful for many lifters due to limited mobility n the hands, forearms, elbows, and shoulders. This can become extremely uncomfortable as the bar gets heavier.

One way that you can solve this issue while you're working on your mobility when performing the front squat exercise is to use lifting straps (as demonstrated in this video).

Remember, the Front Squat exercise hinges at the knees rather than hinging at the hips like in a back squat. Use the example provided to make sure you're holding the bar properly and moving through the repetition safely.
