Overview

The front squat (clean grip) is an exercise targeting the quadriceps as the main muscle group. It is a of the back squat, where the barbell is held in front of the body instead of behind. This puts more emphasis on the quads and less on the back. To perform a front squat (clean grip), start with the barbell in the rack at shoulder height. Grasp the bar with an overhand grip, wider than shoulder-width apart. Your elbows should be pointed up and your wrists should be straight. Step forward with your feet shoulder-width apart and squat down until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Keep your chest up and your core engaged throughout the movement. Stand back up to the starting position and repeat.
