Do overhead squats. It’ll provide a similar stretch to the shoulder dislocates described above, but it will also improve your strength in the stretched position. With inflexible shoulders you’ll likely not be able to do a proper rep, ass to grass. First of all, start with just the bar and try to do 5 or more sets of 6 for a warmup, every workout. Just go as low as you can and keep the proper position, get deeper as you get more flexible. Also, do partials with weight. Set the pins on a power rack and do overhead squat lockouts, starting concentrically (i.e. start on the pins, lift, set the bar down, lift, etc.). Go lower as you get stronger and more flexible. The increased strength in the overhead squat position should help the flexibility as well.[/quote]
When i do O-Head squats, I feel it in my back right under my shoulder blade. it feels like a stretch sorta… what does this mean?
Also, over head squats are hard for me because my military press isnt that good, so i have a tough time keeping the bar above my head for a while. I am trying to increase my military press (sorta) so maybe that will get better.
Thanks for ur help guys. ill put in all that stuff u guys mentioned
