this is my first post here and the topic- box squatting. I am a newbie to lifting though I've done my homework for quite a while, I've read up about all the theory I could find(sets, reps, exercises, nutrition, supplements.. the list goes on)
Anyhow, I've begun lifting around a week ago. I have decided that I will be using a slightly modified westside routine. Anyhow, I am having some trouble with box squats. I am pretty weak right now and very small so I have very little shoulder and upper back(trapezius?) development so holding the barbell on my back is very painful. Not to be wimpy but I am using a pad on the barbell now. However, since I can't see the center ring on the barbell(the pad has no indication of where the center is...), I tend to be a little off center on the bar so it is a little uneven.
To make matters worse, I also have trouble lining my feet up even and turned forward or atleast out slightly at the same angle. So, I am wondering if you guys can help me out: What can I do to make sure that my form and stance/placement of the bar is the same and even everytime?
Thanks a ton guys!
P.S. I am not using much weight right now, I am practicing form for the next week or 2 depending how things go.
