Welcome to the Misfit Athletics Front Squat Template. For years we’ve fielded question after question on why we prioritize the back squat over the front squat in our strength cycles early in the offseason each year. The reasoning has always been simple, but the solution changes with this template. We still truly believe in the back squat as our primary engine for strength accumulation, but acquiring the skill and movement patterns to express that strength in the front squat itself is addressed in a very precise way in this template.
