Mix up your exercises! 4 reasons you should give front squatting a go!
Front Squats require more mobility than back squats in the spine, wrists, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles. This is a great way to work on your mobility gradually! But because of this you won’t be able to lift as heavy straight up, so start lighter and build up!
Front Squats focus more on the quads and upper back while back squats forces more on the hips, glutes and lower back.
Front squats can engage the core more by keeping your chest lifted.
Front squats can help with posture, recruiting the muscles in the upper back causing back extension, helping to prevent a hunch back and therefore front squats can be good alternative if you have lower back issues as it puts less presser on the lower back. .
If your uncomfortable trying front squats straight out, start with a goblet squat.
I am certainly one to avoid exercises I don’t like (mainly because i am not as good at them). But it is important to work on new things, and more important to work on your weaknesses, so give front squats a go!
