Collapsed brake hoses, brake distribution block plugged or tripped to front only, if so will need to be replaced.

If your brakes are that bad I would do a full brake hydraulic system rebuild. Replace the master cylinder, brake hoses and rebuild the wheel cylinders and then bleed the whole thing out with new fluid.
