Front Squat: Basket Grip

from Allen Elliott

Place loaded bar with pad on rack below shoulder level. Mount bar along the crook of your elbows & clasp hands together. Staying under the bar and keeping close to your body, lift bar off the rack and step back to get into position. Squat down by bending hips back while allowing knees to bend forward. Lower the weight until thighs are past parallel then drive through heels to return to starting position. Repeat for all reps then re-rack bar.
Helpful tips and Tricks
Keep head up and chest and back in alignment. To improve your balance breathe in and hold your breath as you squat down. Breathe out as you squat up.
