Andrew i also use the side rack, what is your reason to switch?...may cause the side rack lower back trouble?

Thank you already.

Rest in the rack while squared up, opposed to the side, is a more efficient jerk position. Once developed fully it will cut down on un-necessary body movement, to get to the side rack, which will save my energy. I have not had any back trouble with the side rack in my experience.

Thank for that point of view.

Seems logical...well but sometimes... i can't see tree in a wood. It's a german speech.
