I hope someone can answer my question for why my traps constantly hurt.
A little back ground first. I lean toward high frequency training so I train M/W/F and do 3x8’s for 2 weeks and then switch it up for the third. (8x3, 5x5, etc)
I work out Chest, Back, and Legs, throwing in some abs sometimes. I find that when I finish my bench press, when I unload the muscle, my traps kill. I don’t think my traps are underdeveloped since i perform, many back exercises but I don’t work them directly.
When I open my hands I have to wait for a couple of seconds for the pain to go away before I can sit up. In fact sometimes the pain does not allow me to put my arms down in a fast motion because it hurts too much. Has anyone experienced this? Am I just a Wuss?
