Re: Improving the FS drastically

I like 1-1/4 front squats: where you [decend all the way down (a$$ to grass), come up 1/4 the way, then go back down, then back up] = 1 rep. I also like pause front squats, where you decend down, all the way again, and hold the position for 3 to 5 seconds, then come back up. In case of pauses, I've seen a bounce out of the hole, as well as I've seen no bounce out of the hole. Try both.

I also like High Bar back squats, but unsure if it's better than just pure front squatting for transfer over, more for just leg power I think. Just pepper in some high bar in case you are a low bar back squatter.
