The front squat is a foundational movement in unstable load/odd object functional training.  When performing the front squat, keep these point of performance in mind (use them like a checklist):

  • Send your hips back and down
  • Keep your chest up and elbows high
  • Descend until the hip crease is below the plane of the knees
  • Knees track over the toes
  • Drive through your heels, ascend back to your starting position
  • Knees and hips are fully locked and open at the top to finish rep
