Re: Front Squat Form Check

Elbows are fine. The problem is you are hip driving out of the bottom which is pitching your torso forward. You need to site straight down. Think about trying to sit your butt down straight on your heels. This means your knees need to get shoved out further. Also your stance may have been to wide, but it is hard to tell from this angle.

As a side these sets are not for time. You look like you are racing through the warm ups as if you were in the middle of a metcon. This is causing them to look ugly with lots of sloppy errors. Stop racing through the warm up and make them look good. Warm up is the time to focus on form and make it look perfect so by the time it gets heavy you have worked out any small problems.
