Hi, I’m a 5"7 female, I started lifting a couple years ago - took a looooong break and got back into it recently. I’ve been interested in Olympic lifting for a while, but I’m not sure if I can physically do it.
I have a slightly twisted spine - which doesn’t affect my training usually but it means that the left side of my breastbone, ribs and clavicle are set a good half inch further forward than the right side.
I’ve attempted to front squat before but I can’t rest the bar on my collar bone without some level of pain.
Is there any point in trying to learn Olympic lifts or should I just stick to power lifting? Any tips on how to begin/learn to front squat with this issue?
