The Front Squat is a variation on the standard Back Squat that whilst still working the same basic joints and muscle groups, is preferred by some coaches/athletes for the slightly different technique of the movement and bar position. Most people will lift considerably less weight on the Front Squat as compared to the Back Squat, but this has it's own benefits in terms of the reduced strain on the lower back, and greater potential for increased range of motion.
