I have a question about the front squat and securing the bar with your wrists bended back. Now I know Kelly has a tutorial at the beginning of the program, so I'm sure she'll explain the proper way to get into positioning, however I am a bit concerned about my wrists. I tried out the move with my bar, just to get a "feel" for it, and it feels a bit awkward on my wrists. Did you find this to be the case for you as well? Is it just a matter of getting used to the move? I used a 15lbs barbell btw. I can't go lower in weight because that's the weight of my bar with NO plates.
KCM appears to be extremely flexible. Yes, the proper way to do that move is with elbows extended; however, not all of us can extend that far Also, it's actually probably harder to do that move with a LIGHT barbell because you don't have the counter balance on your hands to push those elbows out. In comparison, I do that move with an 83lb barbell. You're natural instinct is to put your elbows out to keep you balanced. And yes, my wrists are always sore after doing front squats. Over time your range of motion will increase. In general, tho, it's just not a comfortable position
