1-KB Front Rack Squat

The squat is one of the main movement patterns that we train athletes to own in and out of the weight room.


However, there are many variations of the squat to challenge an individual in different planes of motion simultaneously.


The 1-KB Front Rack Squat emphasizes weight on a unilateral side of the body.


This means that one must engage the core to prevent flexion, extension, and lateral flexion.


Along with challenging core stability, the differing weight distribution promotes maximum muscular recruitment to remain in an upright position while performing the traditional bilateral exercise.
