The picture shows the jack stand positioned between the front wheel and the floor jack point.
The floor jacks are holding up the car. The jack stands are positioned at the rocker panels as back up. The procedure for the wood blocks is extraneous in my mind. I am aware you are technically supposed to use the jack stands to support the weight of car. But you are under the car for about 30 seconds, and the jack stands are there as back up.
