My shoulders are terribly inflexible. Actually, my overall flexibilty is poor, always has been, but particularly in my shoudlers. It's difficult for me to grab the bar in the back squat position (pulling the elbows back to rest the bar on the traps), and it's difficult to keep my elbows pointed forward with tricep french presses or skullcrushers. Since these are 2 exercises I'm trying to focus on, my question is this:
- Anyone else have similar problems, and if so what stretches/exercises/modifications helped? And on the streches, how often, how long etc.
I found some just by searching, but I wanted to hear from someone with similar issues. Thanks in advance.
