The Front Squat is a variation of the squat where the load is carried across the front of the body on the muscles of the shoulders. It is an integral part of the “Clean” which is where the weight is picked up from the floor and placed on the shoulders. In the front squat the torso stays more upright than in the back squat, but all of the other principles remain. Keep your feet shoulder width apart, feet turned slightly out, weight on the heels, maintain lumbar curve, knees track the toes, hips drop below the knees and keep the chest and elbows up. This is one of the movements you will learn during the Fundamentals course.
