5×15 Back Squats @ 60%
Breathing on the Front Squat
The front squat cannot be performed properly unless your breathing is dialed in! To do so, focus on the following.
- Unrack the barbell and get into your squat stance.
- Inhale (into the belly).
- Exhale at the top.
The key here is that you are performing the rep with a held breath. If you are huffing and puffing for each rep, your elbows will drop and your core will de-stabilize. A big no-no in the front squat.
Dial in your breathing and you’ll dial in your reps!
