>rack catches the bar
>I spring up and roundhouse kick you in the jaw
>Stacy winks at me

>my 6’6 300 lbs gym bodyguard catches your leg before it connects with me and pummels you to pieces
Pays to be wealthy
>I revert time and anally rape and murder your bodyguard before he woke up that day
Thought you did something there?
Looks like you win, my jaw will sting but my pride remains unbroken
Nah I lied, I don't have a time machine 🙁
>he doesn't know my bodyguard had his mangekyou sharingan active from the very start and that he was in a genjutsu the entire time including the time reversion
>proceeds to mind fucks you to oblivion
Anon... we're leaving.
>*laughs in infinite tsukuyomi and rapes you while you're dreaming of catching me in a genjutsu*
>So this was your dream, anon.
>implying the power of my front squat tempered kick wouldn't shred you and your bodyguard
Nothin personnel kid,
I think they're fun.
Any lift that needs straps is a failure in my eyes
What the hell do you need straps for?
>Because holding the weight with my wrists bent back hurts my little wrists
King, he might be too jacked to achieve a proper front rack position. We should hear anon out first, maybe he isn't a gay with limp wrists
Honestly, how can I get used more to this kind of wrist position? Are there some exercises to improve wrist mobility for front squats?
You don't have to hold the bar in your palms. I force my elbows up to form the front rack and the tip of my index and middle finger are the only things touching the bar
I started doing these a couple months ago and they'd hurt my wrists. I knew ot was my form and fixed it in a couple weeks.
You dont hold the weight with your wrist, you just keep it in place with fingers. Almost all of the weight should be resting on the front of your shoulders, collar bone. When you get under the bar, point your elbow up as far as you can. You want to learn to keep this position throughout the whole movement. You want to keep your elbow from dropping and your torso from leaning forward. Practice with lower weight.
You don't even need to hold the bar if your front squatting properly.
The wrists are only there to stabilize bar all the weight should be resting on your collarbone.
thanks a lot, bros
It needs flexibility not straps.
Anyone that needs straps to lift is a failure in my eyes
I think so, great for hypertrophy, difficult (builds mental strength), and is very impressive to normies.
zerchers are better
zerchers are too easy and it's scary
It's scary because they're too easy?
something must be wrong
I cant put a bar on my clavicle. It just hurts.
The bar rests on the meat of your front delts. You are either placing the bar wrong or DYEL.
i just started working on these. luckily i can rack it right with my wrists/fingers. just i may have ankel mobility, where going down i seem to move forward a little bit; so i need to figure out how to stop that. heard you focus/think about your heels
i like how women use these bumper plates so it doesnt look like the laughably small weight that it is
It still looks laughably small, honestly.
her elbows need to be raised more
Front squats are my main leg exercise, I stopped doing back squats ages ago because I'd always fuck my back up somehow. Front squats just feel better even though I use much less weight
If its your primary squat,
You should be able to do about 90% of your back squat weight during a front
I've always neglected my legs except when I first started lifting and was doing SS and squatting 3 times a week. After a year or two of that I just about ignored legs and did only upper body for several years. Only a few months ago I started an ULxUL split to force myself to train legs twice a week, so my front squat is pretty pathetic
wat? I front squat like 70% of my back squat. my flexibility is shit, so it's a struggle
same, I have no gym or bros to check my form so I always get injured doing backsquats
i think they're good as long as you use heel elevation, i dont like how hard it hits my knees
Are front squats inherently bad for knees
If you have the mobility sure, but they are not worth it if your technique is shit and you have ugly mobility/flexiblity
Leg pressing or hack squats are a better alternative as a quad dominant leg exercise
I love front squats but I have long femurs and absolutely hate doing back squats.
