Sonny under the watchful eye of Peter and Edward
The front squat requires the athlete to do a number of compromises. The elbows must rotate as far forward and up as possible without rounding out the upper back and shoulders. The knees must travel forward without the feet coming off of the heal and the hips must sit back without the torso tipping over. The front squat is a great movement that requires a very strong mid-line, flexible shoulders and loose calves. Who knew squatting was going to involve more than the legs.
