Strength Training Programs: Front vs. Back Squats A topic of interest that seems to get thrown around quite a bit nowadays is whether front squats are a "safer" exercise than back squats. The majority of these athletes have acquired actual structural changes to their shoulders that make the back squat set-up more of an at-risk position than in non-overhead-throwing athletes. To make a long story short, in this externally rotated, abducted position of the shoulder girdle, the biceps tendon pulls awkwardly on the superior labrum. This peel-back mechanism is exacerbated in the presence of a glenohumeral internal rotation deficit GIRD and scapular instability - two features extremely common in baseball players. So, for these folks, the front squat is a much safer alternative.

Strength Training Programs: Front vs. Back Squats A topic of interest that seems to get thrown around quite a bit nowadays is whether front squats are a "safer" exercise than back squats.

The majority of these athletes have acquired actual structural changes to their shoulders that make the back squat set-up more of an at-risk position than in non-overhead-throwing athletes. To make a long story short, in this externally rotated, abducted position of the shoulder girdle, the biceps tendon pulls awkwardly on the superior labrum. This peel-back mechanism is exacerbated in the presence of a glenohumeral internal rotation deficit GIRD and scapular instability - two features extremely common in baseball players.

So, for these folks, the front squat is a much safer alternative. We also use giant cambered bar and safety squat bar squat and lunge variations. Move this bar to the upper back, and the pain is avoided altogether. So, for AC joint pain suffers, the back squat is a safer bet. I regularly squat well over pounds with the giant cambered bar. The issue for me with back squats is a bum shoulder from back in my high school tennis days - similar to what I outlined earlier. My shoulder range-of-motion is just fine, but the structural flaws I have partial thickness tear, bone spurring, and likely labral fraying means that if I want to back squat pain-free, I have to do so like someone who lacks external rotation.

Who lacks external rotation? Well, just about everyone who sits at a computer all day, and every athlete who has spent too much time bench-pressing. The main problem with the back squat, in my eyes, is that not everyone has sufficient upper body mobility to position and stabilize the bar properly. More forward lean equates to more shear stress, and an increased risk of going into lumbar flexion under compressive load. While the extra stabilization contribution from lats may reduce some of this risk, the simple fact that one can move more weight with a back squat probably "cancels out" this advantage in this comparison.

In other words, there are a lot of things I do differently with my training programs these days. I mean, seriously, I looked like I was 12 years old in this video. Because many folks erroneously confused it with flexibility range of motion at a specific joint , the industry as a whole trended toward labeling all mobility issues as true shortness of tissues that crossed the joint s in question. To be more succinct, mobility is dependent on much, much more than just tissue length! People feel and move better after they do it, and it always seems to improve the quality of mobility initiatives that take place subsequently. Breathing can reduce bad stiffness and establish good stiffness.

I read a business development blog post by Chris McCombs the other day where he wrote something that really hit home for me. For me, the money must be there, but it should fulfill me personally, be fun, help a lot of people, and build and be in line with my current brand and brand equity. My online consulting business had really taken off, and the Maximum Strength book deal was in the works. This website was growing exponentially in popularity, and I had just wrapped up my first year on the Perform Better tour - so lots of doors were opening for me on the seminar front to present all over the world - and I could have stayed home and just written all day, every day. I was getting really crunched for time, as I was already training clients hours per day, seven days per week, as my in-person clientele had rapidly grown. And, after being featured on the front page of the Boston Globe with a nipple so hard I could cut diamonds, I was in demand as a t-shirt model okay, not really - but it made for an awesome blog post, The School of Hard Nipples. To make matters a bit more interesting, I had just started dating a great girl now my fiancee who I really had a good feeling was "the one" after about three months.
