Front Squat (a surprising exercise not only for legs, but also rock hard
As you may have already discovered, the squat is at the top of the
heap (along with deadlifts) as one of the most effective overall
exercises for stimulating body composition changes (muscle gain and fat
loss). This is because exercises like squats and deadlifts use more
muscle groups under a heavy load than almost any other weight bearing
exercises known to man. Squats and deadlifts use hundreds of muscles
throughout your entire body to move the load and also to stabilize your
body while doing the drill.
Hence, these exercises stimulate the greatest hormonal
responses (growth hormone, testosterone, etc.) of all exercises.
In fact, university research studies have even proven that inclusion
of squats into a training program increases upper body development, in
addition to lower body development, even though upper body specific
joint movements are not performed during the squat. Whether your goal is
gaining muscle mass, losing body fat, building a strong and functional
body, or improving athletic performance, the basic squat and deadlift
(and their variations) are the ultimate solution.
If you don’t believe me that squats and deadlifts are THE basis for a
lean and powerful body, then go ahead and join all of the other
overweight people pumping away mindlessly for hours on boring cardio
Squats can be done with barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, or
even just body weight. Squats should only be done with free weights –
NEVER with a Smith machine! My program, The Truth About Six
Pack Abs contains the full story on why machines are so inferior
and even potentially DANGEROUS compared to free weights.
The type of squat that people are most familiar with is the barbell
back squat where the bar is resting on the trapezius muscles of the
upper back. Many professional strength coaches believe that front
squats (where the bar rests on the shoulders in front of the head) and
overhead squats (where the bar is locked out in a snatch grip overhead
throughout the squat) are more functional to athletic performance than
back squats with less risk of lower back injury.
I feel that a combination of all three (not necessarily during the
same phase of your workouts) will yield the best results for overall
muscular development, body fat loss, and athletic performance. Front
squats are moderately more difficult than back squats, while overhead
squats are considerably more difficult than either back squats or front
squats. I’ll cover overhead squats in a future newsletter issue.How To Get Cut Abs Quickly Click Here!
