    Squatting hurts my shoulders

    Hi. Newbie here. So I've been using the Freemotion squat machine at the gym for a while to get the hang of it. I tried to do the real thing last week and it was disasterous. The bar (it was padded) really dug into my shoulders and hurt like ****! I could do 200lbs on the squat machine..but doing just 60-70lbs of real squats really hurt my shoulders. I still did like 2 sets, but it worked my shoulders more than my legs.

    Maybe I'm positioning the bar wrong? Am I supposed to use my arms to help lift it or just to keep it in position? (btw I've seen the erxr site)

    Thanks a bunch!
