Hey, I squatted last evening for first time since '99. Glad it's available at my new gym, but have a question about grip & hand placement:
It's nearly impossible to get my thumbs on the bar rings. Not sure if they need to be that close?
If the grip width needs to be that tight, what stretches would help me get it there?
In the past I sometimes placed my hands on top of the plates and am sure that isn't good, but where exactly is preferred?
Also, stretching in general: when is best to do it, what types & how much!
