The Best Exercises You Will Ever Do: Dumbell Front Squat


It’s been a while since I posted a “Best Exercises” post, so I thought I would show one of my favorites. It’s a great way of training the legs while increasing core stability and shoulder stability without placing the shoulders in a compromising position like doing a barbell squat.

Dumbell front squat:



On top of getting pretty much every muscle fiber in your legs working like crazy, it forces your abs to hold solid and to keep your back from bending forward into a kyphotic stance. Plus, it makes you look badass grabbing for the 110 pound dumbells.

The trickiest part is loading up the dumbell, but that’s half the fun!! Imagine back when Aahnold had to do decline or incline press without the specific machines?? They had to roll the bar up and move it into position. They also had hookers and blow for breakfast, so it all evens out, I guess.
