    Default Question about rack position (squat)

    So Iíve been working on the Paul Hour stretch and my right collar bone has been very sore nbd but my hands keep falling asleep and now my left ring finger has been asleep all day. So Iím not doing that anymore. Iím thinking out loud here but probably going to go back to a fairly wide grip and dropping my pinkies off the bar.

    Is having my hands close really that important?? I mean if my back is tight and the bar doesnít move and my wrist and elbows donít hurt, then why work on bringing my grip closer?? I genuinely donít get it. Iíve been reading articles on here about the rack position and watching YouTube And it makes sense, but I canít help but think ďyeah but my back is tight with a wide gripĒ also my finger has been asleep all day.

    How common is it for someone to actually HAVE TO use a wide grip?????

    Depends on the person's build.
    If you have a video, that might help.
