Front Squat: Benefits and Technique

Share This:

And we’re off!

First things first:  I’d like to thank everyone who chimed in to offer their support and words of encouragement with regards to the Premium Workout Group yesterday.

To say I’m really excited for this opportunity would be an understatement, and I can’t wait to see the results people will get following my programming.

Secondly, I want to extend a huge THANK YOU to those who jumped right in and actually signed up yesterday.  It’s my hope that this will be a positive experience for you and that the group will serve as a source of motivation and accountability to keep you on task with your training.

And, you know, to bring back a little sexy too.

While we had a fair number of people sign up I still have some suspicion that an equal number opted not to because they’re on the fence and not quite sure of the type of value that’s included.

Don’t worry my feelings weren’t hurt.  I mean, I only cried for like ten minutes. I’m over it now.

No, really, I just have a little something in my eye.  Is someone peeling an onion?

I keed, I keed.

I touched on it in yesterday’s post, but I wanted to reiterate that not only will I be providing top-notch, quality programming on a month-to-month basis, but I’ll also be providing unique content solely to the group in the form of tutorial videos covering everything from assessment to exercise technique.

Today I wanted to give everyone a little taste or sneak peek at what types of videos to expect:

Front Squat Benefits and Technique

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

FRESH CONTENT DELIVERED WEEKLY

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.

    Morning Tony, I jumped right in and joined yesterday and my first workout pretty much kicked my butt. I am excited about the month to month programming and believe this will keep me motivated! Looking forward to a great year! Thanks

    • TonyGentilcore

      Awesome stuff Kevin. Really happy to hear this. Make sure you log your workouts on WT.com so that everyone can see your progress and chime in!

  • Sam Thomas

    The front squat is my mortal enemy. Yes, I do them weekly, but I hate them, I’m weak as f%&k on them, and I feel like I’ve conquered a foe when I’m finished.

    • TonyGentilcore

      Can’t say I disagree here.

    I read the feed yesterday Tony; there are always naysayers in every crowd>fact is, the more correct and quality info and programs that are available to the masses the better. Not everyone can afford 1 on 1 with a trainer. Not everyone needs it either. This type of service is also an educational one. People need to realize that there is more to lifting weights than getting to a gym and just lifting the weight. It will also help potential personal trainer clients to realize that they should be getting more than a rep counter if and when they go to hire one of us. Your track record in the industry speaks volumes for your intentions; I appreciate your blog, and your commitment to better the industry

    Front squats are great, and I like a lot your detailed cueing. I use them a lot at the beginning, as a precursor for cleans. I will add some of your cues to my tool box. Thanks.

    • TonyGentilcore

      Thanks for the kind words Corina!

  • Ashley Parent

    It drives me crazy that I can’t always watch your videos on my tablet, like this one! Any way you can change that?

    • TonyGentilcore

      I know, really sorry. I’m going to be fixing that issue soon enough. The site will be going through some upgrades soon and you’ll be able to watch everything on your tablet.
