    Re: Front squats vs back squats

    front squats and box squats is what i recommend

    yes they are harder, but they force you to engage the right muscles and use proper form.

    back squats are performed incorrectly by 90%+ of people in the gym. and don't get me started on any PT who has their newb clients doing them. SMH.

    A good training program will use both and also other variations as well.

    Back squats put more emphasis on the glutes and hamstrings. Front squats put more emphasis on the quads

    I think front squats more difficult than back squats

    imho it's hard to do front squats with large weights. I prefer classic back squats
