Set Up
– Execute the Front Squat using all points of performance found in the Air Squat while racking the bar in the ‘front rack’ position
– Finding the ‘front rack’ — use a PVC pipe or broomstick to focus on technique
– Hands are outside the shoulders
– Pinch the bar (PVC or broomstick) in your finger and thumbs (loose finger tip grip) and place on shoulders
– The bar should be resting on the shoulders while the hands ‘baby-sit’ the bar (balance the bar) resting on the fingertips
– Lift your elbows so they are parallel to the floor

– Follow execution for the Air Squat while maintaining high elbows (parallel to the floor) throughout the entire movement Video courtesy of ReebokCFOne.
