HOW TO HOLD THE WEIGHT ON A FRONT RACK GRIP (Front Squat)

Many people love front squats because they're forced to keep their back nice and straight, so that they can finally stop hurting their back.

-

However, if they don't feel pain in their back, they will start developing elbow/wrist pain if they won't understand how to actually hold the weight when front squatting.

-

✅✅✅You should support the bar in your shoulders and NOT in your hands.

-

Your hands only block the weight from rolling forward, blocking the bar in an advantageous position, but they won't actually hold it.

-

❌❌❌ Lateral Epicondilitys or “Tennis Elbow” is typically the result of repetitive motions of the wrist and arm. Such motions can cause tiny tears and inflammation of the tendon and, ultimately, tennis elbow pain.

-

The cause is basically the repetitive motion of wrist extension, executed under load, that has caused you to develop the chronic pain due to micro tears & tendon inflamation which have developed over time.

-

Remember, even if we all train to get stronger, we should train to feel good. Not to get hurt.
