Front Squat x 3


Enlarge image

In a properly executed front squat, the load is born entirely by the shoulders, and not at all by the hands and fingers.

Front squat 3-3-3-3-3 reps

Connor Martin: 295-305-310(x2)-280-305lbs.
James Hobart: 245-275-285-295(x2)-300lbs.
Candice Ruiz: 155-165-175-185-195lbs.
Matt Ross (age 15): 115-145-165-200-205lbs.

Great video, Cori! I just watched it. I like all the skill work she did with the pvc before they ever got into handstands.

Cori said...

amber looks like a beauty but lifts like a beast!
