The barbell front squat activates the anterior chain (front half of body) more than the back squat. Again, proper form is crucial when racking the barbell on your shoulders: “Activate your lats by rounding your shoulders and shrug to provide the perfect shelf; and remember to take a deep breath when lowering into the squat, then exhale and explode on your way up,” says Valentin.
Muscles worked: glutes, hamstrings, quads, lower back, core, and lats.
