    Shoulder Pain from Squatting???

    So for a while now I have been having some issues with squatting and shoulder pain. It is not from squatting itself but when I reach back and hold the bar. It is about exactly on top of my shoulder right where your arm meets your torso(the rotator cuff area). This also happens with behind the presses. I have this pain in both shoulders but it is alot worse in my right one. What could be causing this? Anything I could do to make it more fexible so reaching back and grabbing the bar is not as much of a struggle? I have no history of shoulder/rotator cuff injuries.

    Thanks for reading
