  • Bar Imbalance Squat (Shoulder External Rotation or lack of internal rotation?)

    Hi everyone, apologies if this isn't the right place and not allowed.

    Had an issue for a while with a bar lean when Squatting. My right shoulder hunches up and points further back than my left and as a result causes the bar to dip down on my left side and also slightly anteriorly.

    I'm under the impression this is shoulder external rotation being lacking on my right side and this could be caused by "tight" pectorals, biceps, anterior shoulder and perhaps other things. It has me thinking though as to what if this was actually a lack of internal rotation on the left side and I could just be throwing shit at a wall until it sticks for lack of a better term.

    It's super frustrating and I'm not sure if it's led to any back issues but I've had some soreness now and again after Squatting, I get that we're not perfectly symmetrical beings but this is just excessive objectively I'd say.

    Here's a link of the vid https://youtube.com/shorts/2LmzAxhUL4w?feature=share

    Any input is appreciated and apologies again if this isn't the right area.

    Cheers,

    Will
