If you are not comfortable squatting that is fairly normal especially if you aren't squatting a couple days per week. Overtime, you will build up your neck, traps, and supporting muscles and may not need this barbell pad. You may just simply prefer the extra support- to each their own.
High quality, velcro attaching barbell pad with ample support. For use with 25-32mm barbell shafts along the center area for squats.
