due to some mobility issues. its slightly difficult for me to grab the bar on a back squat. i can do it sure. but now that the weight is going up. its beginning to become an issue. i wont go into the whole thing but if i had to switch. should i use the neutral grip bar like pic rel or switch to front squats which i can do. the gym does have a neutral bar and i never see any one using it. could just switch it up week to week. one week front squats the other week use the neutral bar

    You shouldn't change equipment to get around your mobility issue, do everything you can to improve your mobility or you're just going to end up worse off.

      Just keep at it and your mobility issues will go away naturally

      okay that makes sense. need to stretch more or something. idk. but its like when you grab the bar and get into the position with it on the back. it feels idk how to describe beyond a pain ful stretch and the arm is extended slightly further out to compensate. so my hands are in two different positions making the bar a little unstable unless i move my left arm out far too. i was told though that the arms needed to be slightly closer together too be "proper form" or whatever. i hope that describes well what im talking about

        Yeah you probably need a proper rehab, you need to regain full mobility before you try to get stronger, you're just going to hurt yourself worse

          i did go to therapy and they kinda just made sure i could get my arm over head and stuff. and do arm circles all that shit. i could run through my exercises and stretches more from that. i just do them sometimes like one time a week now. could bounce it back up to three. it was pretty bad though. i couldnt even get the arm above shoulder height for like a month lmao.

        You can grab the bar anywhere from next to your shoulders to basically touching the plates. It's easier to feel like your back stays tighter with the narrower options. Keep it symmetrical though. But if you don't plan on competing in PL or something then there's no reason you have to do straight bar squats specifically.

      i should also note that i did have a minor pec tear in the fall but this does not inhibit dips, benching, pull ups all that stuff

    I have mobility issues in my left shoulder, safety bar squat is awesome.

    otherwise, front squat and high bar back squat if you can manage it
