So according to eric cressey and other sources, back squats can put the arms in a vulnerable externally rotated position.
Do you guys agree? I’ve substituted them with front squats in my most recent workout. The problem is that I can’t lift as much weight and I didn’t get as good of a workout. I usually rep at about 245 back squat but was only able to rep at about 155. Im expecting this number to go up because I just started doing front squats and am more concerned with form. But I’m curious as to how much I should be able to front squat once I perfect my form. So my question is
a) Do you guys believe that front squats are better than back squats when it comes to arm health?
b) what is the ratio of max back squat to max front squat?
