    It's the bar that messes up your elbows on low bar squats. Your options, if you wish to continue back squatting, are either using a cambered bar, buffalo bar, or safety squat bar. If you don't have access to these bars just grip a normal Olympic bar wider. The wider your grip on the bar the less stress on your shoulders.

    Check your messages Trukker. I'll get you some stretching videos later on. It'll be a lot of stretching for the hip flexors, groin, legs, and lower back area. But doing them regularly should help you with squatting without pain

    Give him that band stretch we did with pob. That shit skyrocketed my squatting career.

    So far everything is pointing to this being the cause of my back issues. The quadratus lumborum. Try these out also to help get your back aand strong.
