View Full Version : How to work in front squat with Westside?

12-30-2009, 04:23 PM
In the past I would front squat every so often and it helped my back squat tremendously. I was thinking when I start to slow down on back squat I could use front squat as an me exercise however instead of a 1rm I would work up to a 3rm.

Or maybe use it as a DE exercise on my dead lift week?

You could just do it for a few reps (say 3-8) after your ME lift

I plan on doing it as accessory right after my DE box squats. I decided to thow these in weekly again as my core really could use it. Will be doing 3-4 sets of 6-8

Interesting I never thought of doing it as an accessory movement. But in a higher rep range I could definitely see it working.

Agree with the others, as an accessory movement is the best idea

I've been using it as a ME movement, but I've used it as an accessory in the past as well.

I've only used it as a ME movement and great. It helps me keep my upper back arch while back squatting.
