    Worked up to a 90kg single on front squats today, at least I'm over body weight now. No longer falling forward, well a tiny bit on max effort, but I think thats normal. Not expected to remain perfectly upright on a 1rm right?

    Well, I can tell you this: Can't tell much from that angle. Bar looks somewhat "low" and your stance appears to be more oly.

    well that all depends on what you're using the FS for.. if you're just looking to front squat lots then I think there's some wiggle room as to how much you can let your upper back fail on a 1rm.

    personally I want all of my FS to look like this:



    not that they all do though haha

    Yeah the 2x4 was a little less than 2ft long so I couldn't get my normal wide stance.

    I've realized how tight my hip flexors are and I think that is preventing me from getting full depth when I'm in a wider stance.

    Doing the squats with a raised heel def makes me want to pick up some lifting shoes now.

    Yeah thats pretty much how mine was, just a tiny like 5 degree forward bend at the sticking point. I found knee sleeves really helped my front squat, the descent feels more smooth.

    next time put a 2.5 plate under each heel. i dont know if i am still comfortable with my stance, but it seems to work decent. i go about hip width, point toes out 10-15*, and just try to sink between the heels

    Really? Looks like it would be horrible on the rotator cuffs.

    Dumbbell lunges, a great way to find out that your groin isnt fully healed. On the positive side, back spasm seems to have largely passed, ice, advil, Mcgill exercises seemed to do the trick.

    need some rec's on BCAA's. I bought a pound from true nutrition that lasted me forever, but now it looks like they upped their prices and are selling it in increments of 100g.
