Barbell front squat to back squat

The barbell front squat to back squat is a complex that combines two fundamental barbell squat movements with a press in between to build overall strength, coordination, and endurance. This combo hits every muscle in the lower body, but also seriously challenges the upper-body musculature to control and transition the weight.


  1. Adds size and strength to the quads, glutes, and hamstrings
  2. Builds shoulders, core, and upper back
  3. Great for conditioning and cardiovascular work
  4. Challenging even with light weight
