powercop is off to a bad start

Work on shoulder flexibility the bar should not sit on your traps. If you look in a mirror and lift your arms as if you were going to squat you should observe where your traps and shoulders meet there is a pocket (if not raise your elbows slightly backwards) this is where the bar should sit. It will be more comfortable and it will also put the weight in a better position so you won't feel like the weight is pushing you forward. As to the difference between front squats and back squats, front squats put the tension on the quads and back squats will put the tension more on the whole posterior chain ( quads, hamstrings and lower back). I hope this helps.
