…along with the recommended number of reps/sets?
I’ve had this ongoing problem with the left shoulder, I used to do a lot of upright rows in the late 80’s/early 90’s, I remember some pain back then, and I stopped lifting altogether for the rest of that decade.
Anyway, I’ve found nowadays I can’t do upright rows without pain during and after the workout, severe enough to make me pull faces. I’ve cut them out completely, as with all benching/dips, and I work around the pain - quite successfully.
However, there’s still the ghost of that pain, I’ve done some reading and although don’t believe I have a tear, maybe I have some scarring/impingement.
I won’t ever do upright rows again, but I would like to hit the bench and dips again. I’ve tried the RC movement where you lie sideways and slowly lift your forearm, that seems to help, but I find I can only do 6 -8 reps on the left, and at least a dozen on the right.
Anyway, any practical advice on the shoulder, barring, “See a GP” (I did, she’s useless) would be welcome. A link detailing ALL the excercises, preferably in descending order of effectiveness, would be even more welcome!
