Please sub so I can get to 100 subs then I will sing these hoes ain't loyal.
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.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend. - Bruce Lee
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
