It's my upper body that's killing me. I can't figure out how to properly hold the bar. I've watched how other guys do it and I've tried pretty much every possible height level, but it's no good. See, my options are hold the bar on top my shoulders; however, I've been told as the weight gets heavier this can cause neck injury, not too mention my spine and shoulders are so boney it's hard comfortable to hold the bar there. Otherwise I can do like most people do and hold it lower on the upper-back region...the problem here is I can't for the life of me keep it in that spot, and as I squat the bar sinks lower and lower until it nearly touched the insides of my elbows. That hurts like the dickens, let me tell ya >_>
So when I'm squatting I'm more concerned with the pain than the squat no matter what I do. I only squat 135 which feels really light, but I wouldn't dare add more weight considering I can't even finish my sets as is (I generally have to rack up before I hit 6 reps for fear of seriously injuring something).
This is just depressing because I don't know how to fix this, and I REALLY want to be able to do squats. Help?
