Kettlebell Front Squat

One of the best ways to load the squat pattern is to load the frontside of the body (anterior) as this is how most of us would squat with an external load whether in sport or in life. By doubling up the kettlebells for the kettlebell front squat, you can really challenge your entire lower half while simultaneously isometrically challenging your upper back, shoulder, and trunk. It’s amazing how heavy a couple of kettlebells can feel in this front racked position. Two 35lb (16kgs) kettlebells can feel a lot like 135lbs on a barbell.
