    How do your shoulders like low-bar? I started doing SSBs because I couldn't bring my shoulder that far back anymore. Even high-bar is tough. I do miss low bar squats though...I was my strongest back then.

    My shoulders don't like low-bar squats much. The first day after doing squats, my shoulders ached all day - especially my previously injured right shoulder. But, I think I'm regaining some flexibility there after a few sessions.

    A few years back, I had a shoulder injury that resolved on its own, though I still have some residual pain that I feel doing things like body weight rows. The safety bar squat was a godsend back then, and I stayed with them until now. But, like you, I remember when i was strongest, and that was when I was doing low-bar squats. My deadlift was definitely stronger then as well.

    Right now, I'm just going to slowly add weight to my LBBS and see how it goes.

    Cardio - 30 minutes. 2 miles, 3.9 mph, 7.0 deg incline.

    I hate "spring forward". This tradition must be relegated to the dustbin of history.

    Had a little tweak in my back, but it didn't affect my lifting at all. Actually, my deadlift actually felt really good this morning - not sure why.
