What is your best Front Squat?

  1. What is your best Front Squat?


    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


  2. Why do you ask?

    230kilos~506

  3. haven't done em in a while but will be back in the rotation starting week after next. previous best - 405 x 3.

  4. Damn, I felt special when I put up 275 a few months back, but in my defense I only weigh about 185.

  5. 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.

  6. 320..**** does hurt holding in there tho..

  7. 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.

    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.

  12. Beelze that's exactly what i was thinking of doing now actually, i'll probably get super weird looks but who cares, lol.

  13. 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)

  14. 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?

  15. 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.

  16. 545 off of a below parallel box using a front squat harness

  17. My best was 285... I love them but my knees don't

  18. 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.

  20. 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.

    nevermind...google search fixed me up.

    not to get the thread off topic but for those using a harness, what kind are you using?

    this one looks awesome but is a little spendy

  22. The one i use looks alot like the one on the GS site, i dont know the brand because i just work out at a powerlifting gym and we had it before i arrived. They work well, the bottom will dig into your stomach a bit though.

  23. 415 x 3

  24. Dang you guys are beasts!

    at 165lbs I hit 315 3 times and 335 once.

  25. Ive done 405x2 before, cant recall my bw though. It was many many moons ago.

    Jason

  26. Damn, the best I've done is 235 x 3. Probably could have done a little bit more, but I'm a real stickler for form, and used a 2/3 TUT.

  27. God i hate front squats
    The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.-Psalm 18:2

  28. I just sustained my first ever gym related injury from front squats about a month ago. I had 365 crush me to the floor on the third rep. The funny thing is that I got up and finished my workout pain-free. However once I got out of the car at home it hit me and my lower back was destroyed for days.

  29. ive gotten 315 for 2 or 3 reps and then decided i hate doing front squats and i havent done them since
