One of our three Olympic Lifting movements. The ability to perform this movement requires not only strength, but speed, balance, coordination, mobility, flexibility, agility and power! Be sure to watch and learn our teaching progressions below.
The following is meant to be done in order. Understand and reinforce good position before worrying about how much weight you are doing!
2. Understanding your Front Squat – How deep can you go with good form?
3. Position 1 – Also known as the Hi-Hang or Power position.
4. Position 2 – Some variety in position allowed here, such as: Mid-Thigh, Above the knee or Below the knee position.
5. Position 3 – Also referred to as Mid-shin position. If the bar has bumper plates on, this is starting from the floor
Use Dumbbells if you do not have a quality front squat or rack position
Lots of Mobility needed for this movement! You don’t have to do everything, just be sure to test and retest to make sure that what you are working on is improving your position!
