Zecher Squat

This variation of squat is similar to a Front Squat, it works to build the upper muscles of the quadriceps (thighs).






Calves, Glutes, Hamstrings

  • Lift a barbell off of a weight rack and place across your chest. Hold the barbell with your arms crossed.
  • Place your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart with your knees and toes pointed slightly outward.
  • Drawing your abs in, descend slowly by bending at the knees and hips as if you are sitting down (squatting).
  • Lower yourself as far as you can control without letting your body shift towards your toes (this will cause you to loose balance).
  • Pause in the downward position and slowly return upright to the starting position.
