    Default Front Squat - Don't miss out.

    A study found that back squats and front squats produced similar levels of quadriceps activation, however participants used over 21% less weight in the front squat. This means that front squats can be a solid option to hit your quads if you want a lighter workout or want to work around some knee issues.

    so are front squat easier on knees, or is it just the fact of using a lighter weight?

    Both, since you can use less weight and less damage on the knees.
