The Front Squat is a fantastic movement for leg and hip development, no doubt, but a nice rack also delivers excellent postural awareness. Often when front squatting a hearty 'elbows up!' will be tossed your way. This is not just an aesthetic cue! Driving the elbows up forces the muscles surrounding your thoracic cavity into action, helping to tighten your posture and give your hips something to drive into. Work for a nice rack!
