Proper Technique for Front Squatting

Joseph Coupal - Monday, June 09, 2014

The major difference between a front squat and a traditional back squat is the position of the bar and the hand grip on the bar. There are two popular techniques that front squatters use to grip the bar. The first is called a clean grip (the same grip you would use when performing a clean with a barbell) where you place your first two fingers on the bar in the middle on the edge of the knurling. You then bring your torso in underneath the bar, fire your elbows up tall facing straight outward from you, and un-rack the bar. Finally, you step back and find your personal comfort spot for the bar right above your pectorals as the bar should be lying on a flat plane across the top of your chest. The second grip is called the cross grip and is more popular among those who lack flexibility in their forearms and elbows. You cross your wrists and put your thumbs to the edge of the knurling, pull your body in close, and then drive the elbows up tall again, but this time they should be facing out to the sides. Keep the elbows up high and again find that comfortable spot. Once the grip has been determined and the bar is positioned correctly above your chest, you perform the squat. Make sure to maintain good upright back and torso posture and get low enough to ensure your thighs break parallel with the ground.

The front squat is a good exercise because it focuses more on the front part of your legs. It engages your quads more whereas a regular back squat works more glutes and hamstrings. In addition, the front position of the bar above your chest and across the shoulders puts much less stress on the shoulders than the back position does for a back squat. The spine also receives less stress due to the more upright posture in the front squat. It is also generally accepted that due to bar positioning in the front, you can achieve a much deeper or lower squat in a front squat than you would be able to in a regular back squat. Lastly, there is the notion that a front squat is a safer exercise because the weight is out in front of you and the majority of lifters use less weight than they would in a back squat. Answer is Fitness weight room area provides opportunities to perform variations of these exercises, for overall fitness and health.

Faster Weight Loss: 5 Easy Tricks - Canton

Faster Weight Loss: 5 Easy Tricks

Everybody wants healthy results from their weight loss plans and almost everybody wants them faster. So below are five tricks to achieve faster, healthier weight loss results.

Get enough sleep
People who don't get enough sleep are more likely to gain weight because lack of sleep triggers hunger pangs. Sleep deprivation not only slows down the burning of calories but also is responsible for a decrease in the leptin level in the body. Leptin is an appetite-regulating hormone, and insufficient amounts increase appetite.

Brush after every meal
Brushing your teeth is not only good for dental hygiene; it keeps you from craving dessert or more food. It actually signals your brain to stop eating.

Drink before you eat
Often, thirst is confused with hunger. This is one of the reasons we can often end up consuming more food than is necessary. Drinking a glass of water before every meal will not only quench thirst but also help keep you from eating more food. Also, when dining out, you can start by ordering a soup before the main course. It prepares your stomach for the food that you will be eating and makes you feel less hungry.

Know when and what to eat
Changing your diet will not be easy and if it is not done right, it could create unwanted results. A diet which is protein-rich makes you feel fuller and more energetic for a longer time. Also, ‘going green’ will keep you from craving unhealthy food. Eating at regular intervals will keep your metabolism operating at the proper rate. Don’t deprive yourself of food or skip meals, especially breakfast. Discipline yourself instead to eat at well-spaced intervals to keep you from hunger pangs and sweet cravings.

Indulge to physical activities
There are a number of factors that contribute to the successful results of exercise. It is not just about doing actual exercise, but doing it right. Make time to exercise, but do not push yourself too far or too fast. Indulge yourself to different physical activities or enroll yourself in fitness classes that you will enjoy at the same time. Personal training can also help guide you and keep you motivated.Personal
