225x5 (on video - later finished my last rep after miscounting)
275x1 + Miss

Noticed on my 275, I looked down, elbows went down, and it all went bad from there. Otherwise, I could have got the second one.

Depth is perfect, good work. Good song too.

Depth is fine. You're right about the miss, you started to tilt forward immediately out of the hole; it's a lot easier to dump a lift with front squats compare to a back squat when the bar gets away from your center of mass.

I just need to:
1) not squat with headphones
2) wear shorter shorts
3) put a fucking playboy on the ceiling.

Win. Thanks guys.

Haha tried to go for two eh? I will give you credit, you are just about the only one in that rec who squats with depth over at the EMU rec. GG. Let alone the only one (literally) who front squats. SMH.

Partly why I enjoy front squats...It is hard to compensate once you get to that point of no return.

Looking forward to increasing it further. Just to think I was doing four sets of 185x6 and one of 135x6 when I started just floors me.

Form/depth is spot-on. love how you swing under the bar like a monkey and just GO. There's no standing there psyching up..lol

I dont feel as bad about misses like that. FS has no margin for error. Any loss of concentration and you're doin a face plant..lol
