11-9-14 – Max Effort Front Squats

With just under an hour to train I had to make this training session fast so I stretched out the best I could and got to work. Due to the time frame I had I was only able to do my front squats and two sets of RDLs. I found that front squats are quite difficult and it takes a lot of power from you to keep yourself straight and in a position to where your not dumping the weight forward. I ended up putting a belt on around 220 to help stabilize me. I found it is very important to walk the weight back slowly and with control unlike my 225 where I got too ahead of myself and almost fell backward. Overall I feel like I have a lot of work to do when it comes to front squats so I look forward to working on them in the future.
