    Over your shoulders should work your core more, although if you are using light dumbells it probably won't matter

    Don’t by your side and it becomes more of a deadlift. I’d go with shoulders.

    Re: Dumbbell squats

    in front of you this way you are forced to engage the glutes and hammies more. too many guys use their backs to squat which is incorrect

    I think we all mean the same thing. Although not totally sure what Steve means with ‘out in front’.
