I am rubbish at front squats. Mainly as my mob sucks in relation to them, and thus have never really done much of them in angerr No chance of getting into a good clean poss and even with arms crossed I cannot seem to nail the poss. Best frontie is 140kg!

If I want to do something a bit more quad dominant than my meet back squat tech I just do high bar work.
Thanks. I wanted to get to 200kg, but that's my limit I think.

I think the only reason I like 'em is because I've never found an exercise it took me so much effort to get right (maybe not 'get right' but be able to do at all). Except snatches - can't do those at all.

I think they're a fantastic core exercise and whole body exercise - but I'm not sure they have much carry over to 'proper' squats.
