Recently I began focusing on being the OL with a passion. Specifically, learning to catch the bar in the low position. The routine I've followed for the past two weeks looks something like this
Planks 2x(1 minute)x bodyweight
Farmer's walks 2 x(45sec)x 80lb dumpbells
My problem is that, after I recover from the clean, I drop the weight back into the hang position for the next rep. Briefly, as I drop the weight, I experience pain in the front inside of my shoulder.
I began jerking the weight after I cleaned it, and this alleviated the discomfort somewhat, but then I began experiencing the pain in the middle of the jerk, when the bar leaves my shoulder.
I think it has to do with the relative weakness of my external rotators (shoulder cuff). I'm not a doctor though. I began doing external rotation work (scarecrows... basically, the rotation part of a cuban press) earlier this week, and I haven't seen any results from it yet.
Has anyone had any experience with this?
