I haven’t been lifting long, but I do have a pretty annoying problem and have had it for several months now. When performing bench press I have some pretty acute pain in my anterior deltoid area.
I noticed last night that Dips were also pretty much out of the question…pain in the same area. Upright barbell rows also cause some pretty intense pain at the deltoid insertion point to my upper arm bone (right where the deltoid tapers into the space between the triceps and the biceps).
I can do skull crushers with either dumbbells or barbells with no pain, as well as standing push presses. I can even do push-ups with just some initial / mild discomfort, but bench pressing the same relative weight is painful.
I’m now only working out my pushing movements 2 days a week, and even that may be too much. Any ideas or suggestions…?
