my flexibility for front squat rack position is somehow getting worse - same position, but 2 fingers under the bar instead of 3. as i've been adding in more pullups and pulldowns its gotten worse, so i did this
stretch and it was the most horrendously intense and excellent doms moment of life.
re: front squats, i love the shit out of them. while i will rightfully acknowledge my back squat is limited by mobility that i need to get cracking on, front squats feel so much more shoulder-friendly, comfortable and natural. don't really care if it means a lower working max than a back squat. am enjoying the ab/traps sore feel.
