      does this activate the back, by looking like it does that

      do i just have to hold it in the front in my own way or does it have to be this weird bended or crossed way only?

        Yeah it works some muscles in the upper back really well. You can hold it by just bending your wrists back if you have the mobility for that.

        the placement of your arms is only so the bar doesnt roll off your shelf. The bar is supposed to be resting on your shoulders, not in your hands. If you have too much wrist or hand pain holding the proper front squat rack position its probably because you're approaching it backwards. Most important is it resting stably on your shoulders, where your hands go in the end is an afterthought.
        I will say that olympic front rack looks way more athletic than the arms crossed one but if you have no intention of ever doing cleans it doesnt matter.

          this. using straps in a front rack will really force your wrists, arms, and shoulders in position.

                when people talk about having long or short limbs they mean in ratio to the other parts of their body
                the absolute length of your forearms means nothing without the measurements of your other limbs, you could have entirely proportional 12 inch forearms and someone shorter than you can have very long 12 inch forearms

        I can do 2pl8 front squat for 3x5. I have great hip mobility, but I use straps to help support the bar at my working weight. Like pic related, with the bar still in my hands.
        The people who use straps to fully support the bar while they just grip the straps from 3 inches above is dumb, that won't help improve your mobility. You also want to try to do all of your warm up sets without any straps either.

          Make sure your using figure 8 straps. If you fall that bar has a chance of snapping your forearms

            Wouldn't figure 8 straps just make it worse? You can't bail out with those at all. And the rack I use has safeties at the perfect height for my front squat so it's really not an issue.
