About 3 months ago I injured my shoulder doing LIGHT bench work. I was being a dumbass and tried to go all explosive with it and my shoulders came off the bench and something got screw up in the process of throwing around the weight. I went with the advice of my lifting buddies and decided to just work through the pain.
It started off as pretty bad pain. I couldn’t get under the bar to do a backsquat. I’ve since switched to front squat to avoid the pain of getting in the back squat position.
Here recently, I’ve developed a popping noise from the shoulder on bench press. 2 or 3 pops going down and 2 or 3 going up. When the weight is really heavy, I kind of don’t hear or feel it. The shoulder hurts every morning when I get up. I’ve been icing almost daily for 3 months. I’m afraid to go to the doctor because he will likely tell me to quit lifting weights. I’m not sure what to do at this point. My strength seems to be okay, it just hurts and makes noises during bench. Anyone know what could be causing this?
