Front Squat Fundamentals (No Measure)
Step 1: Set-up
Start with the loaded (or empty) barbell on a squat rack. Make sure that the bar is racked about an inch or two below the clavicles while in a full standing position.
Step 2: Hand position
Choose a hand position on the barbell close to or mirroring the grip you use for a press or a clean. Do not fully grip the bar, but rather just hook the fingers around the bar.
Step 3: Placement
Meet the bar and place it above the clavicles while rotating your elbows upward to create as much of a horizontal angle with your arms. This creates the “shelf” across the clavicles and anterior deltoids. (This is similar to the front rack receiving position for a clean or power clean.)
Step 4: Un-rack
take a deep breath, tighten that midsection, and un-rack that bar with the same aggression and intensity you plan on putting into the set.
Step 5: Stance
After un-racking, stay tight and position your feet about shoulder-width apart (adjust to comfort), point your toes 30-45 degrees outward (aligned with knee direction), and pull the hips back slightly to place majority of the resistance onto the heels.
Step 6: Breath
Take a deep breath and focus a majority of the pressure to the abdominal area to stabilize the entire torso and spine. Hold your breath through the descent and stand — Steps 7 and 8, respectively — of the front squat to maintain midline stability.
Step 7: Descent
Begin lowering yourself into the bottom position (“the hole”), which requires the crease of the hip to fall below the knees, while remembering these cues:
Knees out; and
Step 8: Stand up
Once you’ve reached the bottom position, drive through the heels while exhaling to stand back up while remembering these cues:
Drive through the heels;
Keep the elbows straightforward/high; andKeep the knees out.
