Front Squats with Curl Bar

Area Targeted: Thighs & Butt

Front Squats with tube bands effectively target your quads, glutes, and entire body. Using the Bodylastics Curl Bar, which rests on your shoulders with interlocked arms and elevated elbows, offers a joint-friendly alternative to free weights. The absence of momentum from bands minimizes joint wear and tear, providing a more comfortable and efficient workout experience.

Learn set-up, movements and points to remember below:

Set Up

Anchor: Not required

Bands: Bar: Attach an ankle strap to each end ring of the bar. Bands: Attach each end of the band(s) to an ankle strap.

Body Positioning: Stand on the band(s) with both feet hip-width apart. Squat down and rest the bar on the front of your shoulders with your arms interlocked (making a box) and elbows up at shoulder height. Stand up straight. Keep your back straight, head straight, chest up, and elbows back.


Bend your legs and squat down as if you were going to sit in a chair. When you feel like your body has naturally stopped lowering, return to the starting position by standing up and raising your body until your legs are almost fully straight. Repeat.

Points To Remember

1. Keep your chest up and back flat during the exercise.
2. Make sure that your knees are tracking over your toes during the movement.
