Looking for an exercise that will increase your strength and control? Search no more. The barbell front squat is a great standalone exercise, as well as a building block for more explosive lifting techniques.
Training progression – it’s always a good idea to begin with a fixed barbell, i.e. one with a fixed weight; as your technique improves, progress to an empty Olympic bar. The increased weight, length and diameter of the Olympic bar will provide a great starting progression before adding plates.
