    I've been doing them for a couple of weeks now and I still don't have the form down. My main problem is that the bar tends to choke me.

    I cross my arms like the guy in this picture:

    I do that because olympic style really hurts my right wrist. Is the bar supposed to choke you, or is there something else wrong with my form i.e. not standing upright enough?

    Edit: I put 10lb plates under my heels if that matters.

    oly style shouldnt hurt wrist at all...if you do em right, by having your elbows up so that your arms are parallel to the floor

    and remember, it should only really be fingers on the bar when front squatting properly
