    Zercher with a towel or thick hoodie. Try that since you can goblet just fine. With practice you can zercher 400lbs pain free, you just need to learn to rest it on you your forearms correctly.

    I try to tell beginners to treat it as a reverse bench press. So the goal is to use the same grip, and hit the same spot, as the bench press. Once you get some experience/strength you can try...
