"For non-[Olympic]-athletes, I'd say the front squat. In the front squat, you carry the bar just above your collarbone, rather than across your upper back. Due to this placement, it's rather hard to have bad squatting technique: If you lean forward, the bar falls to the ground rather than continuing to crush you and hurt your back. Also, the upright posture while squatting targets your core. Lastly, the front squat also works the upper and mid back, while still hitting the legs just as well as other squat variations."
—Rob Schwartz, U.S. Olympic Committee strength and conditioning coach
