Front squats are a great addition to any lower limb or back retraining program. This will focus on both your quadriceps strength and control in your back.

Cross your hands on your shoulder (right hand to left shoulder and vice versa). Slowly raise your elbows so that they are almost eye level. You have created a table top for the bar to rest atop. The barbell should rest just in front of your collar bone on top of your shoulders. From this position pick up the barbell, step back and set your feet shoulder width apart. Push your hips back as you start to bend your knees. Lower into a squat, then return to starting position. You should move directly vertical and have no forward/backward shifting during the movement.
