I am a certified personal trainer who services all of Brooklyn in the homes of my clients. I am currently certified by the IFA. Hopefully when I have the time I will be able to complete my NASM certification as well as the FMS certification.

Im at my gym right now playing around with these various grips you posted, but,and this will sound weird, my neck keeps getting in the way so I am unable to get my shoulders up straight. My wrists are not hurting now though.

comment Increasing Weight : Plateau stage
@geeky_sh You most certainly should only increase when you feel comfortable enough to do so. Also, You made no mention as to whether you train with barbells mostly or dumbbells mostly. If you train primarily with barbells then it is easier to increase weight since you only have to increase 5 lbs at a time as opposed to 10 pounds with dumbbells. Just some food for thought.

comment squats and alignment of knees
I obviously meant that as an expression. I simply meant to say that a correct squat is when you go down as low as possible.
