My training cues for the Front Squat!

Exercise Science
2 Possible Bar Grips. I like the clean grip because I CAN DO IT with ease.

Clean Grip > Bar just over the clavicle at the back of your deltoids > Slightly touching your throat (DON’T CHOKE yourself) > Elbows pointing forward (not DOWN) > Lot of wrist and elbow mobility required for this grip > But extremely stable. Cross Grip > For people with poor wrist and elbow mobility > Narrower grip and less stable Starting Position > Take a deep breath and brace your core (EXTREMELY important) > Bar inline with mid-section of your foot ALL THE TIME. YELLOW ARROWS Now, Front Squat > DROP STRAIGHT DOWN (breaking at your knees and hips at the same time) BLUE ARROWS > Don’t worry about your knees going farther out in front over your toes. Small RED ARROW > YOU’LL require a lot of ankle mobility to reach full depth in the front squat Now, The Ascend. > Look forward or upward > Think of pushing your elbow up (BIG RED ARROW) > Neutral spine and chest upright > Drive your feet into the ground Yash Kaushik | Fitness Coach, Fittr THE FRONT SQUAT is a mobility testing exercise.
