is there anything I can to so loosen them up to be able to hold the bar correctly?
I am pretty sure I have calcified tendentious in my shoulders but would rather deal with the cracking that have surgery.

Thank you as always ...

I went through this for 2 years, and know many other lifters who have as well.

There is nothing I have found that helps, short of purchasing a longer bar, and/or getting a buffalo bar.

Do you train at home or at a gym? If at home a bow bar will change your life:

SPECIAL POWERLIFTING BARS

If you train at a gym you may need to place collars towards the center to but some extra space.
