The Front Squat - elbows up!

Many of you are having a tough time getting the elbows up for the front squat and subsequently are complaining about sore wrists. Remember that when the elbows drop the wrists and forearms take on the load. We want that weight back on the shoulders, close to our center of gravity. Keep working on placing the barbell tight against the neck and practice driving the thumbs into the shoulders. This CrossFit video covers most of the common bad habits of the front squat.
