    Form critique on front squat?

    YouTube - 275 Front Squat, 225+chains bench, 35lb nuetral grip pull-up

    Got some bench with chains work and nuetral grip pull-up as well if you're interested. I have no training in front squats, so if there's something I'm doing wrong, let me know.

    Frickin' 29 views and no posts?

    I'm coming off of a minor back injury, which is leading me to utilize the belt in my squats. It's actually been a great investment.

    I personally liked the Chrono Cross soundtrack on the pull-ups, haha.

    If you see anything, go for it. You don't need to lift more to know more.

    Your form look spretty solid, dude. I watched the first minute or so and then I skipped around a bit, and everything I saw looked balanced and proper. Once again though, you are more of an expert in these matters than most of us pretend to be. If you watched the video back yourself and didn't see anything wrong with it, then I sure as hell wouldn't either.

    Actually I'm just about to start the Stronglifts 5x5 programme tomorrow, so video was very useful as I can see how some of the exercises are meant to be done!

    Question though, what is the benefit of the chains on the bench press?

    I've watched this video repeatedly and I dont see any big problems with your form. I had to do this 2x a week for 6 weeks up until 2 weeks ago, so while i'm no expert i did have an expert correcting my form to the point that i didnt need correction.

    the only minor thing i saw was your feet looked like they were not parallel, but i can't tell 100% in the video.That also puts a strain on the outside of your knee, which was intentionally done during my PT as that was the injury i was recovering from but may not be the standard way to do them.

    Edit: this is only in reference to the front squats. just to be clear.

    ok, here's my thinking, but it's a little hard to tell from a back shot. It looks a little like it's low on your shoulders, i.e from the back angle it seems to be sitting on your arms more, about where the bottom of your delts sit on your arms. You want it to be resting on your delts, with your shoulders rolled forward slightly to accomodate that. Like I say though, perhaps it's fine and it's just the angle. take a look at this clip - this is what I mean about it sitting back on your delts.

    By feet being parallel, do you mean pointing forward, or as in one is further in front of the other?

    You're right on the bar being low. I have a bruise on my right delt, and I tend to scrape up my tattoo on my left shoulder as welll. I'll try setting it up higher.

    As fot the chains, it's the law of accomidating resistance. As the range of motion decreases while you get close to the end of the lift, you're able to lift more weight (similar to the principle of partials), so the chains increase the resistance as you move through the ROM. It's also great for dynamic effort work, as you won't try to artificially halt acceleration through the lift.


    Thanks all.
