We know that we place our thumbs on top of the bar during the back squat, and this helps maintain a neutral wrist, and this ensures that the wrist and arms do not bear the weight of the bar. However, it is also possible to overdo this "thumbs over" aspect and end up placing the wrist in flexion over the top of the bar (i.e., it looks like the lifter is draping his hands over the bar) - this is also a problem. Rip explains why this is a problem and how to fix it in this video (from Starting Strength).
