High bar squat muscle groove issue
« on: July 20, 2017, 10:40:04 am »
Anyone have the muscle at their upper back change where the old position of the bar that comfortably goes is now gone, and it starts to be semi painful?

I've been doing some shrugs/facepulls to correct kyphosis and now when I place the bar at upper back it does not feel comfortable anymore and lost the groove i have. I don't ever want to be squatting low bar like those powerlifters.

Should i use a pad?
