Front Squat Common Errors

591 views 2 days ago
The front squat is an excellent exercise for developing hip and knee extensor strength, core stability, and total kinetic chain functionality. It differs from its popular counterpart the back squat in many respects. As it relates to primary functions, the back squat emphasizes gluteal-driven hip extension and greater posterior chain force transfer, while the front squat emphasizes quadriceps-driven vertical extension with greater anterior chain force transfer. The front-loaded position of the bar not only changes the muscle emphasis but also impacts biomechanics and considerations for proper form. Many clients have inherent limitations in trunk stabilization, segment connectivity, and flexibility that can make proper performance rather difficult.
