📚 “Let me break it down for you region by region starting with the shoulders. When holding a barbell in a proper overhead position your shoulders will have a combination of flexion, abduction, and external rotation...two major culprits limiting this overhead position are likely the pectoralis major and latissimus dorsi. The pecs and the lats act in combination to extend, adduct and internally rotate your shoulders which is why they will hinder this movement if they are tight. In a society with way too many desk jobs, smart phones, and poor posture, humans new “resting position” is an internally rotated shoulder already setting you at a disadvantage for overhead squats. Work on getting out of that resting position, stretch your lats, stretch your pecs, open up your chest, and strengthen your external rotators.”
