This article explores the "front squat" (FSQ) and its variations as part of the "big three" (deadlift, power clean, and squat) exercises prescribed by strength and Conditioning coaches to develop total body strength, targeting the hip extensors (gluteus maximus), knee extensors (quadriceps), knee flexors (hamstrings), and core musculature (erector spinae, quadratus lumborum, obliques, rectus, and transverse abdominis).
