Regular squats vs front squats question
Question for you guys: I never could perform a regular squat because the bar hurts my traps like a mother f$&$*%r. Plus, I'm not flexible so I have a hard time grabbing the bar correctly behind my neck.
So when I trained legs, I used to do leg extensions and other machine exercises. I saw some people talking about front squats and thought i might give it a shot since it won't stress my traps as much. Am I wasting my time with this squat variant? Right now I'm training at home with a squat rack and a bench with Olympic bar and weights. Also want to give deadlifts a shot.
Any input on this would be appreciated. Thanks
