I've been lifting for some time now and I've been doing back squats the whole time. Recently I started incorporating front squats into my routine. It turns out that I'm starting to like them better than back squats. I also find I can keep good form easier than i can with back squats.
So would it be okay to completely forget back squats and just focus on front squats? I can only front squat 140 and i want to bring it up.

Also, consider Zercher squats if you are man enough. It will totally rock your core muscles along with quads. The result is that when you back squat, you are much stronger in the hole. Just my experience.
