Leg Exercises - Front Squat
Primary Muscles: Gluteus Maximus, Quadriceps
Secondary Muscles: Biceps Femoris, Semitendinosis, Semimembranosis
  1. Stand with both feet shoulder width apart and knees slightly bent keeping your toes pointing straight ahead. Stand with the barbell resting on the front of your shoulders with your hands locking it in.
  2. Keep your knees over your ankles and bend your hips until your knees reach 90-110 degrees of flexion. Keep your back straight and chest up. At this point your back should be straight but tilted slightly forward at the hip. If you find that you are leaning over at this position than do not go down as far and work into appropriate form for the exercise.
  3. Push through your heels back to the point where your knees are soft and legs are extended.

Helpful Hints:
Prevent unnecessary stress on the knee joints by keeping your knees over your ankles. This exercise requires a lot of wrist and elbow flexibility to support the barbell.
