Today we are spending time working up to a max effort front squat. Front squats have a very high demand for an upright torso and hip torque. If you squat with your feet turned way out, or find yourself leaning way forward in your front squat, you'll want to do the mobility exercises in today's MWod video.
Front squats are great for developing core strength and stability. The placement of the bar on the front of the body exponentially increases the recruitment of the abdominal and back muscles. Today we are going to get as heavy as possible, whilst keeping good lumbar and thoracic positions. Good luck!
