ya don't squat, ya ain't squat
and, the squat 'machines' were invented to keep the pencil necks outta the sqaut rack!
would it be less efficient if you use the dumbbell vers. of the squat instead of the barbell vers.?
You won't be able to squat as much with the dumbbells as you will with a barbell. Plus, it won't help work your core stabilizers the same way. It's a good way to start if you aren't strong enough to squat the bar (many women start lower than 45 lbs. I was one of 'em - started with 8 lb dumbbells). But if you can squat at least 45 lbs, squat the bar and move up.
the bar is better resting on your traps than your neck, and if you haven't got traps big enough for this then ya better get some shrugs in.

regarding the pad thingie, i dont use it because it bothers me; I feel like the bar is too far back of my traps. also, i worry that the pad is gonna roll off or something. you get used to the weight pretty quickly
Being a strong teenager means nothing.
My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.
Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
Ah I had a problem doing hack squats, how do you get it to not hurt your shoulder when doing it. Is there a way to keep the pressure off of it? Is my shoulder just to weak?
