I’m no expert, but the way I understood it the closer your hands the tighter your upper back and the tight the back the better the weight balances on your back. There should be no need to widen your grip the more weight you add.
Can someone shed some light on this subject. [/quote]
Just curious but how much do you actually squat.
watch powerlifting videos. They grip the bar real wide. Grip it where youre comfortable. Work on your flexibility. ANd when it comes time to rack it just move your hands out of the way. Theres really nothing else to be done. Spastic people usually dont make it far in athletic endeavors. [/quote]
Don’t know if I’m technically spastic just slightly fatigued after a set. [/quote]
I reread my post. For clarity. I didnt mean to imply that just because huge powerlifters take a wide grip that all people should. Gripping where your comfortable is what matters. If one needs to work on flexibility to achieve optimal form, then so be it.
But quickly bringing your hands off the bar as you drop it into the rack shouldnt be that difficult. Or get a spotter to help you rack it.
