Amazing front squat technique shown here from @max_lang_weightlifting, 201kg/443lbs for 3 reps. Let's break down this technique. 1) Notice how he takes a huge breath & holds it before each rep. Doing this increases intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) & stabilizes the low back! This allows him to lift the massive weight & keep his back safe. 2) He positions his elbows high. This helps promote an upright & rigid mid/upper back during the front squat. Inexperienced athletes will often hold the elbows too low which can lead to upper back rounding & dropping the weight forward as weight increases. 3) Watch how upright his trunk stays during the entire lift. Even the front squat must start with the hips. We don't want a large hip hinge (like that used in a low-bar back squat) which would send the chest forward & the weight would surely drop off the chest. A small hip hinge engages the posterior chain (glutes most importantly!) - the powerhouse to our body! You don't want to start the descent by driving the knees forward. They must eventually move forward to reach full depth but pre-mature forward movement can place harmful forces on the knees.

Do you have to be fit to start CrossFit?
When I first started attending PRISM, as just a member not a coach, one of our members hit a lifetime goal of 225 lbs for 1 on his bench. I told him we could get more. Today his work sets were 235lbs 8 sets of 4 at over 40 years old!
We're at 11 months later and with some coaching on technique and programming he's on pace to hit 300 lbs by a meet on Oct. 15th.
