Daily Challenge: “Kramer”
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.Notice Melissa’s held breath at the bottom. Her core is tight, elbows are up and her gaze is straight ahead!
Dial in your breathing and you’ll dial in your reps!
