What is the most important difference between “Back squats” or “fronts squats”?


Leverage. People with tall postures can experience some problematic leverage on their lower back when performing full back squats. The upper body has to move way forward to go into a full back squat which can cause the lower back to give out before your legs do. The main problem with “front squats” is holding the barbell in comfortable position. Front squats are great for practicing your “full back squat” because of the positive leverage it has to go in a full squat position. Front squats cause a greater contraction of your mid-back muscles compared to “back squats” which can be useful for several reasons as for example with certain back problems or injuries.
