How to do it

The barbell front squat exercise works the same muscles as the rear squat exercise without placing the weight of the bar on your shoulders and helps strengthens overall body strength.

Steps :

1.) Start by placing the barbell on your upper chest and resting it across your front deltoids and holding it with your arms crossed securely.

2.) Once in position, slowly squat down towards the floor until your upper thighs are parallel to the ground and hold the position for a count.

3.) Slowly return back up to the starting position and repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) Practice the squat without any weight to allow yourself to become comfortable with the movements.
