What are some good exercises I can do instead of benching. I’ve messed up my shoulder and I’m trying to find something that will help me out.
I’ve done floor press w/ dumbbells, and that seems not to bother it too much. Any suggestions would be great. Thank You [/quote]
Does it hurt if you use dumbells for benching? I know that when my shoulders were bothering me, using dumbbells helped with the pain. Also, stay away from flyes, that seemed to aggrevate it. Pec Dec was alright, no pain there. So, you can try that. What about a Hammer Strength machine for chest press?
I’ll probably get flamed for even suggesting this but try benching in the smith machine. That really helped me when I was having shoulder problems. It’s not ideal but it might help get you through until you shoulder feels better.
Also, one last thing. Try keeping your elbows in while you do any benching movement. That has saved my shoulders. I can now bench pain free.
