Bap bap bah bap bap bap bap bah!!!

Oh yeah…we did that today too!

a few words from Kris:
why should u front squat? cuz that’s where you catch your heavy (full squat) clean.  the king of exercises the most powerful lift peerless in developing speed and power (along with the snatch you will not accomplish your true 1 rep max by catching the weight any higher than in a deep front squat.  if the rack position is a challenge for you for lack of flexibility or otherwise or if you can’t hit full depth with an upright torso…. you have a weak front squat.  it’s a problem that must be fixed before you can expect any success with the clean.
