The Problem: Your Front Squat Sucks

Your front rack position and mobility sucks. Don't feel bad, you won't be stuck with low elbows and a turtle shell for life. With a little help from Quinn, Kristy and the Juggernaut Training System, you'll be on your way to a sweet rack in no time.

A decent front rack position is a lot more important than most of us think. You've done it, we've done it, you approach a front rack position before de-loading your racked weight and you have no clue what you're doing. Your elbows drop, you cave forward, and most the time on heavier lifts you bail. For whatever reason, just can't seem to get into that front rack position with proper shoulder flexion and external rotation.

News flash: Your Wrists Aren't The Reason

It has to do with a lot more than just elbows, wrists, and how warmed up you are (or aren't). In this JTS Strength Video, Quinn Henoch demonstrates tips, tricks, drills and goes into depth about how your front rack mobility actually can improve. Featuring Elivate Athlete Ambassador, World & American Masters Record Holder in the Snatch and Clean, Kristi Brewer.

"You will earn short-term changes relatively quickly [from these demonstrations], and if you do them consistently, you’ll start to notice more permanent changes"

One of the most challenging aspects of beginning to learn the Clean & Jerk is the ability to hold the bar in a proper front rack. In this tutorial, Dr. Quinn Henoch with some assistance from Juggernaut Weightlifter Kristi Brewer (World and American Masters Record Holder in the Snatch and Clean & Jerk) shows you some simple steps to improve this position.
