comment 'Knees out' cue with front squat - could this be a source of minor knee pain?
@AlexL I agree if we change "good front rack" to "good bar position". I actually prefer to use a zombie squat with the bar deep on the shoulders rather than a true front rack position if I'm trying to figure something out with stance or movement pattern for the front squat.

@AlexL I agree, but I'm wary of doing that while playing with stances and new positions in a new exercise.

@horsehair Unfortunately that doesn't mean they'll be effective for your purposes. Can you gain access to dumbbells, or a pull-up bar, or something that can be jury-rigged into a pull-up bar? See "What if I don’t have a gym?" at nerdfitness.com/blog/2009/11/06/…

comment How should I breathe when lifting?
@masonk How so? From your link: "A modified version is done by expiring against a closed glottis."

comment Looking for weight lifting program for person with joint problems
A better approach than "find a program" is "find what the problem is" and fix the problem. Something specific (or a combination of somethings) is causing specific joint pain. Do you stretch your wrists? Warm them up before benching? Investigate the problem in depth instead of bailing entirely for a new field.
