This week I want to share with you a series of movements I use with athletes when they have a difficult time getting the barbell comfortably on their back to do back squats.
There are many moving parts putting a barbell into a back rack position. You have to have sufficient thoracic spine mobility, you need some scapular motion, and you need shoulder joint external rotation.
Whenever someone is limited in their overhead range of motion for pressing, overhead squatting, handstands, etc., they are quick to blame the 'shoulder' as being the thing that needs to be stretched or rolled out.

Need a good shoulder warm up for overhead lifting, olympic lifting, or gymnastics movements? This banded shoulder warm up has all the bases covered.
The front rack position is very challenging for many athletes, especially when they are new to olympic lifting. Sometimes the shoulders are stiff, sometimes the wrists are stiff, but we also have to consider the coordination of relaxing the right things at the right time.
This general lower body warm up will get your legs ready for the demands of deadlifting, squatting, jerking, and more.
