    This may be a stupid question but here goes..
    When you’re lifting should you be actively pulling your shoulder blades/scapula back and externally rotating shoulders outwards?

    I’ve always had problems with my shoulder mobility and have suspected they were rounded and something with my posture wasn’t right as I was struggling to feel my arms/shoulders work. But when I do actively pull my scapula back and try to externally rotate my shoulders to my sides, I can finally feel my arms and shoulders activate more along with a better connection to chest and back.

    Should you adjust shoulder/scapular position to where you feel the best mind muscle connection or always pull shoulders back?

    Cheers!
