Hey guys - I’m just learning the front squat (been lifting for a year) as it is in Waterbury’s TBT plan that I’m about to start. I tried it last weekend to see how it works and everything felt okay (powerlifter style) - upper arms were parallel and I felt the burn right where I expected.
The only problem I have is holding the bar on my front deltoid and supporting it with my fingers because I rested it on my fingers on top of my front shoulder. My bicep just goes up too high that my fingers can’t extend so much that it wont get into the way (6’0, 189 lbs). Any problems with having my fingers between the bar and my shoulder? I have searched this site and found no solution to this problem and I don’t want to switch to the bodybuilder style as I hear it’s just not as efficient of a technique. Should the tips of my fingers be just outside of shoulder width and bring the elbows inwards? Any help would rock!
