I think it's all too easy to do Front Squats for quad work but never actually do them in a way which targets the quads. You see guys crossing their arms desperately holding on to a slipping bar, rounded upper backs, wrapping their knees up, belting up and not going down all the way and instead of being a good quad exercise it's just more hip squatting.

So it's been a long process to get to where I look and lift differently but well worth it in the long term I feel.
I couldn't agree more. I'm still working on mine. I believe it was late-ish December when I switched over. Great work in such a short period of time man.
