Which lift is better for overall leg development, front or back squats? I can't do back squats right now due to an injury, but front squats can be done fine.

Pretty sure front squats are just more of a quad loaded exercise. Back squats are more hamstring and glute loaded exercise.
I would just say back squats seeing as more weight, usually, is being distributed throughout your muscles but i dont know any scientific evidence about it.
what kind of injury do you have?

hmmm and front squats dont hurt your knees? that's weird. have you tried a wider stance on back squats? that seemed to help my knee pain

definately back squats, front squats is just an isolation of the quads, back works glutes,quads, and hamms

Front squats are okay on my left knee, which is odd considering back squats hurt it. I'll try the wide stance tomorrow.

Should have had an 'Over 700lbs' option on the poll in case Mark Henry or Hossein Rezazadeh dropped by the forum.
