Keep Your Reps Under 5 On Front Squats
It’s important to keep the reps low and keep the time under tension low on front squats.
The longer you do this exercise the more your spinal erectors will fail. Your quads can out last your erectors for strength and time under tension. So you have limited time to hit your quads hard.
A 20 rep set of squats is brutal but effective, a 20 rep set of front squats is not a smart thing to do.
Doing high reps on front squats you will lose the bar and your erectors will fail before your quads.
So keep the reps low and the weight higher.
