I don't do any isolation exercises with heavy weight for chest for fear of injury, just a light very high rep pump set or two after my main exercises before stretching. Chest is growing fine. Usually the only time I tell people to do isolation movements for chest other than that is to use them before the main exercises to help develop some mind muscle connection if that seems to be a problem and their chest is a weak area. Otherwise, I personally wouldn't worry about it too much.
yeh my chest isn't a weak area. just feels like I am missing out my not doing the isolation movements. I suppose it shouldn't really matter because I am still progressing on the bench press and floor press variations. That makes me feel a little better that you only do that amount of isolation work..
The pain kind of comes from the centre of my right shoulder joint. Like a fatigued burning pain. It kind of feels like a small muscle is extremely tight and fatigued and it just aches after i have finished doing any sets of isolation chest exercises or incline barbell press.
Had a similar injury several months back. I echo the advice that rest and refraining from doing any exercises that hurt your shoulder when you do them. Personally, I found myself eliminating all barbell bench pressing movements. Dumbells were okay, but still not great.
In the end, I simply focused on my back and legs for six weeks or so while my shoulder recovered. Amazingly enough, it this was exactly the right thing to do. My back and legs were lagging and the time I spent focusing on them helped bring them up to where they should be.
Mine was/is supraspinatus as well. Getting better.
BBB - how long doing a program like Neanderthal No more and avoiding pressing movements should the injury heal? I mean is there a point say 8 weeks where if it's still bothersome to seek professional help?
