          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.

    I think so, great for hypertrophy, difficult (builds mental strength), and is very impressive to normies.

      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.

    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

      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.
