I have been doing a version of Starting Strength for awhile, and decided to make an adjustment since my squat is close to my goal while other lifts have lagged a bit. I decided to try switching squats on Wednesday for front squats, starting light and working up. Holy hell were they uncomfortable. Does this eventually go away, like the uncomfortable pressure on your back/traps during normal squats, once you do it awhile? Do you develop a sweet spot like you do with squats?

Where's the discomfort? Clavicle?
post #37869 of 57262
The discomfort is just from the pressure of the bar on the front of my shoulders. I'm just wondering because I could see it being the limiting factor way before I am using enough weight to really work my legs etc.

Yeah they eventually start to feel better. You get a stronger rack position, you won't round as much. I've never found them particularly uncomfortable, but after doing them consistently for a while they feel good. Nice change from back squats, the weight feels very light after back squats.

I didn't do them long enough but I had the same problem when doing front squats. The normal way was digging into my collar bone and for some reason I couldn't keep my arms up enough. The cross armed way worked much better but the bar was still digging into my shoulders. Also hated how it pushed on your neck. Not one of my favorite lifts.

I wanted to start cutting at end of Feb or March. I also wanted to hit 200 lbs before then. I also wanted to total over 1000 before then. Currently I'd have to add 155 lbs to my main lifts to do that. Considering my deadlift is woefully low because of grip issues, I'm wondering how fast that'll pack on another 100 lbs. Considering plating up 20 lb jumps after I test out the straps, just to see how far/fast I can push it up. Thoughts?

Well if your squatting 350 or whatever you said you squatted you should be pulling in the low 400s about, which should put a solid 100 or so lb on your total.

More than 400, mid-high 400's.

It's funny, most people would probably agree, but hearsay goes that Ilya started drinking more then just got better after he stopped listening to his coach. Dunno if happened at the same time or anything, but clearly he is not "normal".

I think I'm doing something wrong because my DL is only 60lbs higher than my squat.
