Fundamental Movement: The Front Squat

The CrossFit philosophy focuses our training program on nine Fundamental and Functional Movements…

The nine Fundamental Movements are:

Air Squat
Shoulder Press

Progression 1
Front Squat
Push Press
Sumo Deadlift High-Pull (SDHP)

Progression 2
Overhead Squat
Push Jerk
Med-Ball Clean

The Front Squat can be tricky and a little uncomfortable when learning how to properly perform.

Just remember to stick with it, and keep trying your best.

Your flexibility, technique, and strength will improve. I promise this movement will become easier.

Here are the points of performance to remember while front squatting: Hips back, knees out, and chest tall.

The video below explains everything our Coaches look for when helping you with the Front Squat.
