Front squats make you a better overall lifter and athlete. Because the weight is held at the front of your body rather than behind your neck, your base, core, and legs all grow accustomed to getting low.
Front squats put less pressure on the spine, allowing you to do the movement with your spine in a more natural position. If your back is in poor shape, front squats are better than back squats. Although you won’t be able to lift as much weight as you would in a back squat, you’ll still get intense training.
