Lol, I don't like front squats as much as a good old back squat but I'm definately learning to like them alot better. They are a good switch up.

Well, let's just say that the old back squat is a bit older for some of us But yeah, guys, everyone hates front squats at first. They're harder to get comfortable with. It's funny because they are easier to get "right" but harder to get used to. So everyone just loves the back squat because it's easier, but half the time they don't even back squat worth a shit anyway.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Thursday October 16

179lbs

Hack Squats
325x3
335x3
335x3

Pullthroughs
180 x10 reps x2 sets

Front Squats
95x6x2

I actually ended up switching the widowmaker for some front squats. I'm going to keep hacks as my maximal exercise for now and once front squats are more comfortable I may promote them to the primary exercise

I agree. They're a lot easier to do compared to back squats but they take a long time to get used to. I still hate them but I know they pay off very well.

Looking good Kane, I like the layout, and if I had a full 5 days a week to lift I'd be straight jacking your program hahaha.

Keep it moving, and as others have said ... Front squats are boss, love them shits, even the Kettlebell version is fantastic.
