As everyone has stated, depends on your grip. Myself, I do it bodybuilder style with the crossed arms (I envy the guys that can do this properly with Oly style clean grip - damn their flexibility).
It can a get a little emotional (choking wise) when you go heavy but that is part of the exercise - helps to keep you focused & maintains strict form. As DebraD has stated "if there a little choking feeling you are doing it right"
In terms of the bodybuilding lifting style Keep your elbows high, build a "shelf unit" from the room across your clavicle almost & bridge the bar across the separation between your front delts & biceps. Stand tall, stay tight & proceed with squat
Maybe you can film your FS issue & it can be critiqued here <?>
