I have been into powerlifting and fitness for over 23 years. I want to front squat in the olympic style, but cannot position the bar correctly across my clavicle and end up doing them body builder style. seems I can't roll my wrists back far enough to let the bar engage and my elbows end up at about 70 degrees instead of 90. any thoughts?

obviously work on your flexibility but also roll the bar back onto your finger tips. work hard on this and in time you will be able to get the needed flex. until then i would suggest you use straps. wrap the straps around bar and have the long length up.....grab the long length of strap at the same width for the clean and or front sqt. this helps with people who have tight wrists or are injured in the wrist area.
