Re: About front squats, and power clean rack position
The Bar should rest on you shoulders and against your throat. It will be slightle choaking feeling, but that is somethying you get sure to.
Like Sean said. Your elbos should be high and only the tips of your fingets should be touching the bar.
Really you should be able to fron squat it without you handsa on the bar at all. The bar on your shoulders, arms out like Frankensteins monster. You should be able to hold the bar and even squat it.
