I’ve been trying for six months to increase my bench beyond 185lbs but after my last attempt there is this spot in the middle of my left delts and on my trap that is sore. I went to a chiropractor some months ago and he relieved the pain but it only flares up when I bench. It first occurred several years ago but until I started benching it wasn’t a huge problem. If I hold my thumb on the muscle or whatever it is for long enough the pain and size subsides but it gets really hard and painful when I bench or overhead press.
I’m thinking that I just have poor shoulder/thoracic mobility because during squats I can’t get my wrist and arms completely under the bar, they flare out like I’m getting ready to punch.
Is it a mobility issue or possibly more?
