Not sure if this is the right place or not, but, how can I change my squatting form to alieve the pain in the bones of my upper neck? Not using the foam, nor do I feel that it will solve my problem if its bad form.
2quantify, try putting the bar lower on your back (around the traps). The bar shouldn't be resting on your neck at all. It's real comfortable.
^^ Yes they are
@2quantify - you need to take a grip on the bar such that it is comfortable yet narrow so that you create a shelf with your traps and scapular for the bar to rest on. This is either a high bar (on top of the traps across the back of the shoulder) or low bar (across the back of the shoulder).
To do this also requires a more solid upper body position and a firm grip on the bar.
