? Feet are set behind the bar forcing me into an arched back goodmorning position. I basically have to do a heavy back raise to get the bar out. This is a weaker position and puts undo stress on the low back.

? Midfoot’s under the bar — I have a solid brace in a neutral spine position. I can standup like I’m finishing a squat for a stronger, safer unrack.

Setup for success and be deliberate in your preparation. A smooth unrack sets you up in a good position for an efficient lift.
