Maggie Dabe from CrossFit Fairfax is one of CrossFit HQ’s traveling seminar trainers. She is originally from Ecuador, and explains our standard cues and faults for the front squat entirely in Spanish.

The mechanics of the front squat are identical to the air squat. The barbell rests on the shoulders (not the hands). The elbows should be as high as possible. The heavier the bar is, the more important it is to keep the weight on the heels, and the more core stability is required to maintain effective mechanics.

This series is our first venture into foreign language instruction in a video. The rest of the core nine movements will be included.

That's great! I am excited to see CrossFit explaining this in Spanish. Not too many in my family speak English and I have had to explain CrossFit and its movements in Spanish. This will facilitate everything for me.
