Front Squats=Bruised Shoulders

Does anyone else get bruises on their shoulders from front squats? After the Front Squat workout last week, I had large bruises on each shoulder, never had that before.

I focused on good form, even scaled down the weight to do so. elbows up, bar on finger tips on the shoulders.

Re: Front Squats=Bruised Shoulders

When I first started front squatting I did for a few weeks. Mostly on my left side where I have a bit of bone displacement from a broken clavicle a few years ago. I never get bruising anymore unless I crash a clean, just sometimes a bit of skin irritation in the middle of my neck from higher reps. However, I have not done 84 reps of moderately heavy front squats for time like that WOD.

I'll get bruising on my clavicle from time to time from FS and C&J's.

Yes, from last weeks WOD, first time ever got bruising from front squats. It had to have been the 84 front squats with 185 IMO
