    They break down the muscles in your quads, hams, and glutes; so that you can build them up bigger and stronger.

    They are usefull to do if you don't have a squat rack.

    Front squats tend to emphasize your quads more than traditional squats. Also, they can help your normal squat form as you have to stay more upright otherwise the weight will fall off your shoulders.

    Also, PLs use them as assistance exercises to help improve their squat poundages.
