      Hello, I am trying to maximize my weight in squatting, so low bar squatting is apart of my routine.  When I attempt to squat like this though, I have pain in my left shoulder. Even, when I use a light stick to practice form, I still seem to have ever-so-faint pain in my shoulder. I do not believe it is impingement, because I can lift my shoulder vertically without pain (most often). Also, when I Bench Press, I do not feel pain wither….very strange Now, I am doing shoulders dislocations now, so I have to see if the pain resides during the actaul squat. Any help is appreciated.

      I was thinking of doing this stretch, but I am not sure honestly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yV-jQmVUEWk

      Are your wrists in a broken position?
      Working up/down stream of where you are experiencing the pain?
      Neck tight?
      A couple to start with:

      Thank you for the vids.  It doesn’t matter position my hands are in, regardless if they are straight or bent. My left shoulder equally hurts. As I work downstream, I experience more pain.

      You need to optimize position without breaking your wrist. When the wrist is broken it changes shoulder position and load.
      A couple others to check out.

      Work on shoulder extension and shoulder external rotation, especially with your arms at 90 degrees to your body. Look up wall glides. Soft tissue work for the deep layers of the anterior shoulder and biceps smashing as well.
