i feel like a plan restricts my training to much i like going by how i feel on that night instead of doing x amount of sets and reps and weight. i do however have one week dedicated to reps and the other more along the lines of triples, doubles and singles maybe 5rm aswell

Very big weights, but personally I would suggest dropping the weight and doing the full movement, they were both a mile high for a front squat I'm afraid.

Good lifting mate, great raw strength at 17, if you have the right people around you or can travel about a bit and train with other good lifters you'll make some cracking progress, maybe they weren't ass to grass but still a great effort from such a young lad. Strong mate.

Thanks man. I would love to travel around a bit and train with others at some point the people I train with are a great people aswell keeps me really motivated to continually push myself. I don't squat ATG it f**ks with my knees to much a past injurie makes it nearly impossible to do without pain

There nothing wrong with doing a parallel squat no matter if it's front or back not everyone can squat like an Olympic lifter

thanks man Happy. the way i was taught to judge depth was if the centre of my hip is parallel with my knee or slightly below its a good lift. for me personally 200 is right on the edge could go either way but i thought the 210 was good for depth but others might disagree


top of knee to hip crease bud, so it is a tiny bit high. But it is strong as f**k still. film them from straight across and move the safety bars a wee bit.

Depends why you're doing them, if its to get good at partial front squats then fair enough, if its to get carry over onto other things then you're missing out.

I think you're doing yourself a discredit if you think you can't do a full front squat. If you can rack it in clean grip I would doubt if you couldn't do a full squat with a bit o coaching

End of the day my opinion means nothing and you carry on fella, good luck with your lifting

I'd agree with the depth comments. Think 180 full depth would serve you Better.

Not to say it isn't impressive doing that with 200+ kg! Particularly at 17, just could be setting yourself up for short term success instead of prolonged awesomeness.

I coach a 15 year old lad with a 170 FS and that issue of wanting to push it all the time is very clear. Appreciate that if you took your time and put 2.5kg on lifts every month with good form and a plan, by the time you're still only 27 you'd be front squatting 500!!!! Obviously that's insane but it illustrates the point that your major asset is that you have a head start on most people your age and huge amounts of time.

Good luck with your lifting!
