Over the years I’ve gotten these two questions quite a few times. “what’s the difference between back squats and front squats?”…. and, “which is better?” Someone recently asked me this question again, so when I saw a post from Breaking Muscle, I decided to post it here on our blog. My response to these questions has always been:
- both are beneficial and you should do both, assuming you have the adequate mobility
- if you want to be able to do cleans you should include front squats in your training
