How to Front Squat
Exercise Families: Squat
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Hold a pair of weights with both hands directly in front of your chest and plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.
Inhale. Looking straight ahead, bend both hips and knees, ensuring that the knees point toward the toes. Continue bending the knees until your upper legs are parallel with the floor, ensuring that your back remains arched and between a 45- to 90-degree angle to your hips.
Exhale. Drive both feet through the floor and extend your knees straight to return to the starting position. Repeat the front squats for the specified amount of time or repetitions.
You should feel this working your core, glutes, hamstrings, and inner and outer thigh muscles.
