Re: Front Squat Form Check

One thing I'll tell people to work on for a more upright torso is have someone hold a PVC pipe or their hand behind the person squatting. The cue is to tell the squatter to make their shoulders touch the PVC with their shoulders. It won't happen but it works. I find the hand works better because a physical cue always works better. With the hand you have someone place it on your thoracic with some pressure and the cue is to keep your back pushing up against it.
There is no substitute for strength, and no excuse for the lack of it.
