      These are really not strength builders in the same way but still excellent movements. I like doing them with a long (5-10 sec) pause in the bottom, really feels like it helps when I have snatch/clean the day after.

      Or Sandbag/Atlas Stone Squats. Basically a front squat but you have to hold the implement in front of you.

      Bonus points if you fully extend knees, ankles and hips at the top as if youre going to push them over a bar. Usually when I do them I do a sandbag clean and toss it over my shoulder on the last rep.

    The chart doesn’t make sense. The amount of weight being lifted is equal, and both are using your legs. There’s simply no scenario where either exercise would “work more muscles” than the other exercise. Maybe they left out something.

        these emg studies are such horseshit, muscle activation will be determined by how hard you're training, I can see how activation ratios could be accurate but to say every muscle group is less active just means they were doing an easier weight on that exercise

      Retard. A front squat and an RDL are both done “using your legs” but I doubt you’re going to tell me those have the same effect.

      >I have no idea how physics works
      Holy shit you're dumb. Front squats have the weight more in the front of your body. You have to use different muscles to prevent yourself from falling forward.
      Back squat puts the weight at the back of your body. You use different muscles to prevent yourself from falling backwards. If you honestly think they're exactly the same because "they both work legs" you're a child and have no business moving any serious weight. Stick to the Smith cage.

      Surprise retards, it's actually harder to do a front squat than a back squat, not to mention the difference between the two in terms of muscle activation - even if you go by the chart in OP - is negligible to say the least. What is that like a 5% difference? Do you even lift? Fuck outta here.

      The same reason it requires a lot more muscular effor to stand on your hands than your feet. Your body is balanced in a certain way on your skeleton taking the most weight, but if you start moving the centre of gravity around, you need to exert muscular effort to counter that. If you do a squat while holding a weight way out in front of you, you need to activate your arm muscles as well as legs, despite not lifting extra weight vs having the weight on your back.

                2pl8 front squat might be physically less demanding than 3pl8 high bar, but it looks much more impressive to normalfags with no mobility. I have only seen a couple people ever front squat 2pl8 or above in a commercial gym, myself included. I wish I had access to a real weightlifting gym, but that doesn't exist in my area.

                I havent really lifted in a commercial gym in years so my sense of what is impressive to normies is really off. I feel like half the women in my gym can front squat 100kg or more and nearly all the men front squat 140kg or more. I prefer back squats but I have a heavy front squat coming up next week and am aiming for 170kg so we'll see, should be doable after hitting 200kg back squat this week.

                [...]

                Squat more and post less, 100kg front squat is easily achievable for any man in a year if you give half of a fuck.

    Front squats are the best squat. They are better for hypertrophy; way safer, they won't snap your back, if you fail, the barbell inmediately falls away from you instead of potentially crushing you. They weight you need to load to have a good workout is also a lot safer to load onto your body

      Wrong. Zercher requires you hold the bar in the crook of your elbow, putting the weight at tummy level. It keeps the weight forward, but also lower so more core is involved

          It's a 15kg women's bar and the shot is probably right at the bottom of the clean where the downward acceleration of the bar is being stopped so the ends will flex a bit
          You can get this much whip on a men's bar at like 140kg, you don't need a ton of weight to get it bending in that kind of scenario

      If you have to do the crossed arms to do it, do it.
      But, you know, don't if you can help it. At some point in your life you might decide you want to give olympic weightlifting a try, and you're already doing a front squat so you may as well build the mobility in your arms for the proper position. Do it for your warm up sets, or any sets lower than your max and is comfortable for you. You'll eventually get it all limber and shit.

              Use straps to hold your hands in place against the bar. You want your hands just outside shoulder width, basically as narrow as you can get without your hands being crushed between the bar and your shoulders. Use the straps to swivel your elbows up as high as possible with the bar right against your throat, and actively squeeze your hands during the lift to keep them in place.
