Front Squat to Bench

The Front Squat works the same muscles as the rear squat without placing the weight of the bar on your shoulders. This exercise can be a good substitute for people with back and neck injuries. By using a bench you remind yourself how far to squat down


Barbell, Flat Bench




Calves, Hamstrings

  • Place a bench behind you.
  • Place the barbell on your upper chest, resting it across your front deltoids and holding it with your arms crossed securely.
  • Keep your head and back straight, abs drawn in and your toes pointing slightly outward.
  • Slowly “squat” down so your upper thighs are parallel to the floor.
  • Slowly return to the starting position.
