Building on the Air Squat, the next foundational movement is the Front Squat. In this exercise, athletes use a barbell that is “racked” on the front of the shoulders. It’s basically like creating a shelf for the bar to sit on.  This movement forces you to stay upright while performing the squat and is great for getting your lower body in shape fast.

There are a few key elements to make sure you perform this movement correctly. See the video demonstration of the movement below. Also, this movement is part of the coaching that we provide at CrossFit PPG. Contact us or call us at 404-824-5542 to learn more on how you can transform your body and your life at CrossFit PPG.
