    450 front squat easily.

    any decent 225+ lifter could hit a 400 bench

    Both are impressive. But with good training on both I think the bench would be harder to achieve

    I think this may be true. But I've only seen one person that legit frontsquatted over 450 in my whole life whereas I've seen at least 8~10 400lb benchers in 3 different university gyms I've been to. Probably because front squat is more technical and not many people do them.

    Bench for me, but I've always struggled on my bench so who knows what it would be for someone else.

    Not sure if serious with the bench comments. I was benching 400 way before I hit a 450 front squat. I've seen a few guys in gyms over the years benching 4 plates but I've literally never seen anybody front squat over 4 plates except for myself.

    I would say front squat since most guys barely squat let alone front squat.
    "Instead of asking “what do I want from life?,” a more powerful question is, “what does life want from me?”

    What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.

    450 front squat. Hands down. I've been able to bench ~400 since I was 19 after 4 years of bench. I think it's pretty doable for anyone over 200lbs. There's no way I could front squat 450 now after 10 years of squatting. And I back squat over 600.

    400 bench. Front squat is a good hipster movement though.

    It engages the hips well, i mean.

    400 bench is way more impressive, look at how large the leg muscles are compared to your chest and front delts... most people squat a chit load more than they bench anyway

    The front squat is definitely rarer, that's for sure. However you'll find way more 400 pound benchers because everyone is orgasmic about the bench press.
    500/385/585, 265 overhead press, 250 weighted dip, 190 weighted pull-up, 413.8 max weighted pull-up, 385 front squat, 365 RFESS, 30 pull-ups at 225, 50 flips of a 500-550lb tire. Men's club level rugby player. Novice Strongman. 222. 23 years old.

    Front squat, i seen people bench over 400 pound but never front squat that much. Sure you have less chest, delts and tricep muscle then your hips and legs but front squat require much bigger movement then bench press.

    even trying a walkout with 450 would probably destroy my wrists and elbows just trying to keep the bar in the correct position

    450 front squat is a lot more impressive IMO. Dat joint durability
    I sometimes lift

    What you are forgetting here is that leg muscles are not the limiting factor for 99% of those who front squat.

    The front squat, no question.

    If you use powerlifting form on the bench (and not bodybuilding/bro style) you can move a lot of weight.

    Bench without a doubt. Your legs are a lot stronger than your chest/shoulders/triceps. People who train both front squat and back squat should be able to front squat 80% of their back squat anyway, so essentially this is like asking which is more impressive: 400 bench or 560 squat? I've seen way more 500-600+ squats than 400 benches.

    Front squat only seems harder because most people neglect legs. If you did both legs and chest twice a week each it would take you longer to get to 400 bench.

    I've been able to hit 335 front squatting after only about two years of serious training. Unfortunately no videos and I've recently injured my hamstring, but I feel like my progression over a 2-3 year period would put be somewhere near 4 plates. My bench on the other hand is only at around 265, and thats after doing that movement for nearly 4 years. I cant see my progression over the next few years even coming close to 400.


    So I'm gonna go with 400 bench
