I have said it several times already on this site, I prefer front squatting over back squatting. I am sure most of the readers of this website are not going to feel the same way. For me it is much easier to find my groove front squatting. Would body stature play a role in why I feel this way? I am 6'1 240lbs and I where 30 inseam pants. I have a friend who wears the same inseam pant and he is 5'9! Needless to say I have a long torso and long arms (my legs may not be long but I have the reach of some guys that are 6'3). Anyway it seems to me that with this body stature the Front squat maybe better since it allows me to stay more upright. Just looking for opinions. I do a lot of snatch grip deads, trap bar deads and GHRs so do you think I can get away with mostly Front Squatting and only hitting back squats once in awhile? I do not compete in powerlifting, although this coming year I plan on competing in a few Highland Games. By the way, if it matters, I lift raw (no equipment).
