    Front squat with a mended collarbone

    I broke my clavicle way back and until now it hasn't presented any problems. But having recently tried to incorporate front squats, i've noticed that the extra size from the healed break is kind of getting in the way. The right side is okay either cross armed or regular grip, but it's really digging into the left collarbone which was broken.

    Should there be plenty of clearance between bar and bone or am I pretty much out of luck? Anyone experienced this before? At lighter weights it's fine, but once the weight climbs it becomes very hard to handle.

    What about wearing an extra shirt or using a towel to provide more padding?
