I feel like if I keep benching the way I do I’m going to blow my rotator cuffs.
I get pain/aching from the front of my shoulders down the side of my biceps/brachialis. It hurts only after my sets and when I’m benching heavy. It doesn’t “hurt” per se, but it does make benching more difficult than it should be. My hands are usually shaking and it feels like my arms have no energy or power to push anything.
I focus on shoulder blades in back pockets, but as the weight gets heavy, especially if I’m doing heavy triples, my shoulders start to cave in forward. My grip is also fairly close.
What are good bench cues to keep this from happening?
I’m assuming my rotator cuffs are weak?
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
