Uncomfortable holding the barbell for Squats properly?


✖️ Why can’t I comfortably hold the barbell on my back?!

👉🏽 This is very likely to be due to excessively tight lats COMBINED with weak external rotators for the shoulder!

👉🏽 Try these two movements before your next set of BB Back Squats and see if you have any more freedom of movement in placing the barbell on your back!

👉🏽 1min dynamic lat stretch each side
👉🏽 10 x external rotation on knee @ 4010 tempo
