Marc Rippetoe teaches the low bar squat. According to him shoulder flexibility can be an issue. Although I can't recall what he recommends besides just doing the lift to increase flexibility. I have spent most of my squat life doing low as I can go bar, but have recently brought it up a bit.
Rippetoe has a pretty great write up about the low bar squat in his "Starting Strength" book.
"The fastest way to get strong muscles is also the fastest way to make them bigger. We know what works best to make them strong in the shortest time possible. If you want to get big, do the thing that makes them strong." - Marc Rippetoe

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.
