A Front Racked Kettlebell Squat is another variation of a Squat, again working through the glutes, hamstrings and quadriceps, whilst putting less pressure on your knees and lower back when compared with a back squat.

Take both Kettlebells into the front of the body in the front rack position. Your palms should be holding the handle of the kettlebell and the bells should be against the backs of your wrists. Keep your arms tight into your body. Set your feet up into the classic squat position with the feet just wider than hip width apart and toes angled slightly outwards. Squat down as low as you can without creating a bend in your spine and push back up.

You can replace the Kettlebells with Dumbbells if you prefer, in this case you will hold them against your chest with one bell almost on your shoulder, keeping the bar parallel to the floor.
