I am more of a front squat guy. Easier to really engage the quads.

        I tried taping up my fingers. it helps with climbing, not for this. Maybe the coats aren't fashionable enough.

      Go lighter lad. Your tendons will gain strength eventually

      If it’s a matter of flexibility try taking your pinkies off the bar, if you’re still not flexible enough, take off ring fingers. Should allow for easier time pointing elbows up. Work wrist and shoulder mobility until you can get all fingers back on.

        i may re-approach front squats trying fewer fingers, thanks. My shoulder mobility is better than it use to be, thanks to some of the tips I got here, so I'm absolutely going to have to try that. It was always drilled into me that all fingers gotta stay on.

      Well not quite, she's clearly stuck at the bottom and can't get out of the hole.

      Looks like 125kg to me. 10+15 is 25kg, times 4 is 100kg. 10kg of 5s. Bar looks bendy, 15kg womens bar, making for another 25kg, 125kg total.

    Why do you need to engage your quads?

    Back squats already hit quads well enough, the real question is how to involve glutes and hamstrings in the lift

    Are you supposed to be 100% vertical or be mildy bent over when squatting front? I always try to keep my back as straight as possible but im noticing I always feel my back getting sore and my quads very rarely.

    Agree, fell in love with zercher squats a few months ago and haven't looked back. Very satisfying lift, and typically I hate doing leg day.

    Ooook. Back squatting isn't meant to isolate the quads, front squatting does emphasize them though.
