Ok so I understand you are supposed to keep your elbows in and you are supposed to bring the bar so it touches your stomach.
Problem is with elbows in, I cant bring the bar up that high - even with no weight, heck even with no bar! To get my arms that far back I have to kick my elbows out some.
So what/how do I correct this.... is it ok to kick the elbows out at the top to get the bar all the way up?
also, where is everyone gripping the bar, narrow? wide? or shoulder width (basically arms straight ahead). I am doing straight ahead/shoulder width.
