Body parts: 

The barbell front squat is a multi-joint exercise that strengthens the legs. The upright position of the torso during the exercise also builds strength in the core. By loading the weight on the front of your body instead of your back, you're able to activate more muscle in your quads using less weight. This form of the squat as helps if you have limited range of motion in your shoulders or a previous shoulder injury.
