I recently started lifting some weights to put on some muscle. For the past 3 weeks I’ve been on a split program training 4 times a week.
2 days ago when I was doing my shoulder training routine I encountered a little problem. I went through the lateral raises both regular and front, but when I got to the bent-over lateral raises I got a stinging feeling in my rear/posterior deltoid muscle.
At least that’s the muscle I think I got some pains in, since I’m not so experienced that I can tell exactly if it was that muscle or not. The pain didn’t occur when I made the ordinary side raises nor at the front ones, only this one.
Nevertheless I stopped immediately so I didn’t do too much harm and proceeded with some military presses, where I didn’t have too much troubles either. I’m 100% sure it wasn’t due to sore muscles, but what could it be then?
Yesterday I had my breast/triceps day, did incline benchpress, flat bench with dumbbells (since I read here it’s better that way), regular flys and the upright sitting breast machine. I felt like the deltoids was a little tense, even though that could be from the training the day before, so I didn’t want to go full out.
It concerns me a little since I’ve read so many times in here to “take care of those shoulders!” What to do now? Wait and see what happens next time I get to my shoulder day or give it an extra day or two of rest, or what do you suggest?
