WOD 8.28.17

Kettlebell Front Squat VS. Barbell Front Squat.

 

Which one do you think is better for you? Same movement but different tools which will yield different effects. Yes they both strengthen your legs, but the bar is superior in that department. With a barbell we can load much heavier than with kettlebells and we have the ability to progress upwards in weight in smaller increments. Unfortunately the barbell will just balance on our shoulders. With kettlebells the load is much smaller in comparison to our absolute strength potential BUT we get a whole bunch of extra “stuff.”  K-bells challenge our shoulder stability, grip and will smoke your core like no-other tool.
