Front squats are great exercises.
What is your PR?
Obviously you must go BELOW a "powerlifting" legal depth. A walkout and unlocking the knees does not a front squat make.
I'll go first: 350 lbs
Why do you ask?
haven't done em in a while but will be back in the rotation starting week after next. previous best - 405 x 3.
Damn, I felt special when I put up 275 a few months back, but in my defense I only weigh about 185.
506, so far 315x8lb it's the pain of keeping the bar in place that has kept me from going heavier so i always pussed out, i'm going to get some of those manta ray thingy's that go on the bar to help keep it in place without it really hurting.
320..**** does hurt holding in there tho..

How many of you guys use the elbows up grip (not sure what esle to call it) vs a arms crossed grip?
I can't use the elbows up grip worth a DANM! So I have generally used the arms crossed grip. Best would probably be 305x3, not sure I could get it right now as I haven't done them in awhile and I lose strength and technique on this one quick. This lift IMO ranks up there with one of the most painful.
Damn dude you must be a BEAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Originally Posted by ryansm
345 I think.
Probably 275, maybe.
And yes, ryansm is a beast.
get a front squat harness . that was my issue and the reason why i stopped doing them. it was choking me out and it hurt my shoulders holding it there.Originally Posted by CHAPS
Ryan borders on the supa freak side of things. You should see him in a thong!Originally Posted by dirtysouthmuscl
Beelze that's exactly what i was thinking of doing now actually, i'll probably get super weird looks but who cares, lol.
285 X 2
Weak legs are a sin, and I'm thesinner
I tie 100lbs or so to my waist, like dip belt. Takes the stress off my wrists, and I'm able to do them without a squat rack (which I currently don't have access to)506, so far 315x8lb it's the pain of keeping the bar in place that has kept me from going heavier so i always pussed out, i'm going to get some of those manta ray thingy's that go on the bar to help keep it in place without it really hurting.
Do you guys put the bar on your shoulders and cross your arms so that your palms are on your delts or do you rest the bar in your palms?
Geeez some crazy numbers!! I never tried maxing on the front squat because Im worried about my knees, but usually I hit 225 x 10 after doing regular squats.
545 off of a below parallel box using a front squat harness
My best was 285... I love them but my knees don't
I'm buying the harness i miss these, my legs love em
That's a really ludicrous amount of weight. I thought i was doing really well for myself when i hit 305.Originally Posted by dirtysouthmuscl
i don't know if it counts because I do mine in a smith machine (non counterbalanced) so that I can sit back and keep my knees from going foreward.
with wraps 425x5. I did them this week the first time without wraps. I stopped at 365x5 below paralell, followed by 315 for 3 sets of 5 dropping as low as i could go with my hams stopping against my calves. it was easy but I'll be stepping it up over the next several weeks.
numbers should be about accurate as I do below paralell Zerchers (squats with bar resting in crook of arm in front of you) with 405x5. That's free weight and walkouts.
Where do I get one of those front squat harnesses? I would be real interested in that.
