Hi, it’s Rachel Cosgrove for Sleek/Strong.
Today I’m gonna show you how to do A Barbell Front Squat. Now before you tackle this exercise,
make sure you watch the ‘How to Squat’ video, and really work on your full range of motion
squat. Now why a front squat instead of a back squat? Because a front squat is gonna
make sure you don’t cheat. Having the load on the front of your body is gonna make sure
the muscles along your back are working to keep your body upright. So first things first,
we’re gonna go ahead and place a bar on the squat rack, right at about shoulder-height.
You’re gonna put your arms straight out in front of you, create a shelf, right across
your shoulders. Walk forward, with your feet even and core nice and tight, and you’re just
gonna lift that bar off the rack. Bend those hands back, just to keep that bar in place,
and walk yourself out of the squat rack. From there, keep that chest up, nice and tall.
Elbows stay up, and core is tight. As you lower down, keep those knees over your toes,
and then come back up. You’re gonna go ahead and perform the repetitions in the workout,
and then place the bar back on the squat rack. And that’s the Front Squat. This is a great
exercise to re-invent your body. I’m Rachel Cosgrove for Sleek/Strong.
