Im new on here so heres the thing i want to compete in powerlifting soon. I have previously tried low bar squats and my shoulders killed me i tried for 6 months i trained with a guy who did powerlifting and squats low bar 575 lbs raw and he told me to do shoulder mobility work which i did 3x a week it still not no help. Once i get up to about 225 still shoulder pain ive squatted 315 low bar and it felt like it ripping my shoulders out.
He assured my form was corrent and we even tried a few different positions. So i started squatting high bar which feels much more natural i can do 375x7 at body weight of 198 i have not maxed out on high bar. So to make this short would i be able to use the high bar squat in poeerlifting meets and how effective is it ? And is it legal to wear oly shoes in raw powerlifting?
