Ok I've been trying to do overhead squats for a while, but I can't get anywhere near parallel without my arms wanting to throw the bar forward over me. I can't keep the bar behind my head at all, and obviously the problem is my shoulder flexibility.
I tried a test to see how flexible my shoulders are with a towel. It's where you grab the towel stretched at two points and bend it back behind your head. Well, basically the towel had to be 2 inches above my head for me to flip it back around my back.
My shoulders are far forward on my torso, and my arms cannot go past my back when stretching them backwards.
Anyone know of some kind of exercise to help stretch my pecs and anterior deltoids to allow me to do overhead squats?
