I'm simply not used to having any weight on my wrists in that position. Or any position, really, considering most things I do I likely stack the bones so my wrist is caring any of the weight.
The complexity of the movement is exactly what caused your pain. Neek is correct. You should have the bar on your fingertips and supported primarily on your anterior deltoids, not your clavicle. Your fingertips essentially only balance the bar during the rack position. Your trainers should be looking out for this and correcting it.
