When getting ready to take a barbell out of a rack, take your time achieving the best position you can get into with your feet directly below the bar. Before lifting it off the rack, take a big breath in and expand the volume of your chest and go through your bracing sequence before "feeling" the weight and unracking it. This will ensure you're in the best position to walk out and start your lift. Most often you'll need to take another breath before starting the first rep.
