    Front Squat Harness World Records

    After having a bit of fun setting these targets I have put together a 12 week Training Program purely based upon increasing my 1RM in the Front Squat with the Harness. Please note: a Full conditioning/foundation base has been put in prior starting this cycle.

    A basic westernized Strength Cycle would look like this:

    4 weeks of 8 reps
    4 weeks of 5
    4 weeks of 3
    Record Attempt

    What I have tried to do is mix a basic westernized Strength Cycle with Eastern methods (Louie Simmons)

    After setting a 1RM in the Front Squat with a Harness the program template would like this:

    Week 1 Monday – Squat Option Max Effort 5 Reps
    Week 2 Monday – GM Option Max Effort 5 Reps
    Week 3 Monday – Deadlift Option Max Effort 5 Reps
    Week 4 Monday – Squat Option Max Effort 3 Reps
    Week 5 Monday – GM Option Max Effort 3 Reps
    Week 6 Monday – Deadlift Option Max Effort 3 Reps
    Week 7 Monday – Squat Option Max Effort 5 Reps
    Week 8 Monday – GM Option Max Effort 5 Reps
    Week 9 Monday – Deadlift Option Max Effort 5 Reps
    Week 10 Monday – Straight into Front Squat re: below
    Week 11 Monday – Straight into Front Squat re: below
    Week 12 Monday – Straight into Front Squat re: below

    Hi, whats a good number front squat? 2xbw? also any details on what the top rugby players do? I think my core is holding me back in these, the other week i did them with a bodybuilder mate of mine and we used a belt and i could get another 20kg, I started doing bb side bends (upto 65 3×12) and straight leg situps (12.5 behind head 3×12) Is this a good idea,
    Cheers and good luck with your project

    Very tough on rugby players to front squat with various injuries that is why the front squat harness is fantastic for them also the safety bar which has a similar feel with out the issues of lack of flexibility, I have had some players go to 140kg on the front squat harness, we use it to teach catch position for cleans and also to build confidence in that whatever you can clean you can stand up with if you are front squatting 20% more at least, so having a strength differential is important between the 2 movements, cheers,ash

    I play prop, hence the name, and i was wondering which would benefit me more at this time, concentrating on my front squat (160×2) or my deadlift (210×1) or trying to improve both, cheers

    Both are solid lifts, increasing strength is not your problem from the
    look of those numbers, maybe how rapidly you can produce force could be
    a key for you to consider, ash

    Ok, how would I go about that?

    Power Training/Rate of Force Development training/Contrast Training

    Use of plyometric or unloaded weight training exercises after performing
    a very heavy compound movement, for example doing a back or front squat
    with a load equal to 90% of your max effort and do 2/3 reps with this
    load and then doing a set of repeat long jumps or depth jumps or a
    ballistic jump squat at 10 – 20 % of the max squat load (5 – 10 reps,
    minimise the ground contact time and be very reactive off of the ground
    within about 3 – 4minutes post the heavy set or immediately after the
    heavy set as I find more practical in a training sense from what the
    researchers say, ash
