And just work out my abs directly once a week? (54:26) #Quah question #3 - The front squat is now often regarded as more functional than the back squat. It doesn’t allow for as great of overload, but allows for a greater range of motion and is more quad focused, core and upper back demanding. Plus, if you deadlift the hamstring and glute emphasis is already there. Should the front squat take the pedestal from the back squat?

Is it all true?  (44:27) #Quah question #2 – With all this extra time, I find myself trying to fill my day with activity. Is it too much to do yoga, long hikes, walks, and a strength training workout every day?

(54:01) #Quah question #4 – What causes your knees to cave in when you squat and how do you fix this problem?
