In terms of what we are trying to accomplish and muscles worked, what are the differences between the front squat and back squat? Any preference for doing one or the other? Thanks.

The main difference I can tell is that I feel my core working a lot more during front squats. I would prefer them to back squats if I didn't get bruised and swollen collar bones from it.
