That was ok… not great, but ok.

I’m really working on my front squat form. I feel like I lean too far forward. I think to some extent I can’t help it, just how I’m built. But I do think I can do better than I have been. I’m really working on keeping my chest full and up, thinking about keeping upright, keeping my chin in and head “up” (neutral). I am thinking I may want to try putting my heels up on something (probably just some 5# plates). Anyways, as a result today things went a little slow, but not too bad. I do think I could have gotten more reps on the AMRAP but simple enough I was losing the bar from forward lean each time. Of course that tells me it’s my torso, my form, etc… So, there’s much to work on.
