    Squatting for the first time - pain in traps/shoulder area?

    I have done barbell squats today for the first time ever and felt pain in the upper back/trap area where you are supposed to put the barbell. Is this acceptable for a total beginner to squats? Maybe over time the body will get used to it.

    Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength is coming soon, so I will learn from that. I am just squatting now looking at a few videos. What is your take on this?
