exactly where on the shoulders do you catch the bar? Do you brace the catch with fingers?

It rests as close to your throat as you can take, right on top of your shoulders.

Hopefully that makes sense. I've found when I catch it close to my throat, almost like I feel like I'm choking, I have put up the biggest numbers.
