Shoulder's on legs

I'm back after injury (tendons in shoulder and bi)

Did legs today and I found hooking my hands around the bar to hold the weight on my back felt like it was pulling on my bi and shoulder. After a set of squats I could tell having my arms pinned back doing it when I finshed it felt tight in the shou/bi

I was thinking maybe its this what caused the injury, simply having my arm pinned back.
I think I've heard it before, that shoulders take a beating on legs, but why, is it just balancing the weight.

Thanks

    Sounds like you have a flexibilty issue around your Delts/rotator cuff. Try working on that a bit.

    Thanks for the quick reply mate

    The thing is I was fine until I got injured. After the injury doing any exercise where I have to balance a bar on my back and have to pin my arms back to hold it, it felts a little tight after the set.

    If you have an injury I think you lose some flexibilty where you were injured don't you.

    Scar tissue will impede flexibility, but unless it was serious you should still be able to compensate past that point, just work on it a little.

    I've had much the same, never used to be a issue at all for me. A little twinge a few years ago and the position is certainly less comfortable, even today.

    So in a nutshell what's our saving grace

    Stretch the shoulder and bicep before all workouts and do a little rotator cuff work and in time it will be better.

    So does holding onto a bar on your back irritate your shoul/bi as well.

    Thanks for the help.

    It pulls on my shoulder a bit but eases as the sets pass. You could gently stretch prior to training but TBH I think it will not make much diff. Best bet is just to keep stretching regularly after training and over the weeks your natural ROM will improve

    Ok thanks mate

    I hope it does improve, after 8 weeks of rest I've just had, I was thinking its gone for good, but now I've started again its back in a small way. I just don't want a tight bicep again all day every day, its not painfull, but its just that feeling.

    Thanks bud

    This is how i took my shoulder out too. I dont do squats anymore now, just deads and hack squats which is sufficiently working my legs. I have a flexibility issue with my left shoulder which has come from an injury long ago so no more squats for me.
