Front vs. Back Squats

🔥Front vs. Back Squats🔥

Both squat variations are extremely useful in building strength, adding muscle and developing power for athletic activities.

There are differences in mechanics that make different muscle groups activate slightly differently in each version of the squat. The overall muscle recruitment is very similar though.

Proper execution is extremely important and sufficient mobility is required for both versions (although the mobility needed for front squats is greater - which is not a bad thing ). 😊

Whichever version you prefer, it’s a good idea to work both of them in to your overall programming. 👍🏼

Let me know if you have any questions. 🤔
