When I grip for front squats i use a grip similar to a PC. My fingers are pretty much touching my shoulders. Sometimes i even take two fingers off which goes to show that all the weight should be across your shoulders/chest.

Don't get me wrong, I used to have the same problem as you! You just have to find what works for you.

Sounds like the same thing I was doing. I took my pinkies off the bar for a little better range of motion, but even then I found my ring fingers slipping off. My wrist, which has had problems for about a year now, was really set off by the fronts yesterday, and today it's just ridiculously painful. I guess I've finally convinced myself to go get it checked out, but as for tomorrow it looks like I'll be off of lifting. Hurts too bad even just moving it. Oh well, time to work on my new program I suppose.

Well if your wrist is a problem I would try the cross over grip. I can't do that grip because I can't seem to get enough ROM out of my shoulders to get my arms up high enough to hold the bar in place.

Take it easy on your wrist for a bit man.

Eating update: the past few days have been absolutely terrible, family get-togethers, parties, etc (busy weekend!) I've eaten almost entirely junk and way too much of it, just like last weekend. This isn't the norm, my cheater days will typically only last one day and I won't be eating as much as I have this weekend. For now... I will continue being fat

PT:
Sat: 6mi run through a mountain bike trail. Stomach cramps 3mi in, and a massive, uhh, load was knocking the entire time. Needless to say it was a very slow, excruciating run!

Sun:
Mountain bike- blue trail, near max effort- 42m15s

Been real busy, haven't hacked out a program yet but hopefully I'll get around to it tonight for a critique. We'll see how time goes. For anyone who might be reading my journal and hasn't figured it out yet- don't bother paying attention to the PT portion of the log, it's just so I can keep track of where I'm at.

Update:
I've been insanely busy, and the one day this week I tried to hit the gym it was closed. This is the first day I've lifted since Wednesday of last week. Ugh

Mon: no pt, 2,300 cal (if I remember correctly)
Tues: no pt, somewhere around 2,200
Wed: 30 min bike, speed is irrelevant since I was drafting a bus half the time 2,200 cal

Today:
Been in a pretty bad mood, was one of those days where I just need to get in the gym and smoke myself. Since this week was fubar already I just kind of did whatever sets/reps I felt like and went from there. On that note I still haven't had time to work on the new stuff (been INSANELY busy), but it'll be here in the next few days for critique

Squat: 3x15 135
Bench: 3x12 135 missed last rep
DL: 1x1x365, 1x5x315
Bi/Tri/Abs/Pulls: done

Cals: 2,200
PT: lifted

9/6

Was too sore to lift or run, just called it a day.

4-4,500 cals, cheat day. Though I've read that a weekly cheat day should be in the vicinity of 1,000 cal over maintenance, that seems a bit high. Any insight?

9/9
Once again with the insane schedule.. haven't had time to plan, missed a lot of workouts, basically I just got something in today. Better than nothing. However my legs were feeling real tired during the warmup cardio, so I dropped the squats for the day

Bench: 3x9 155
DB overheads: 3x9 70
DB rows: 3x9 140
Other stuff...

2,800 cal
Lifted, 20min warmup since I didn't have time to lift and work out today
