Why Would I Front Squat to a Box?

The front squat is a very important lift.  It is a foundational component of the clean and thruster, but also the wall ball, goblet squat, and getting things out of the fridge while holding a baby.

Unfortunately the lift breaks down getting into the bottom position and definitely on initiation out of the bottom.

Many times, at sub-maximal loads, you can grind through this breakdown; however, there is no hiding from it at top-end effort.  Even worse, the grind that gets you through your working sets may actually be making you worse.

This video will highlight a differentiation piece that you can utilize to smooth out the errors of the bottom position and the transition from down to up.

Good luck and Keep moving,

Dr.J
