I hoped that anyone who has had any problems or knows something could say something.
This problem has bothered me for long time. It has ached for some time and got better, again and again, but not very often. Lately it has appeared very often. Every next day after benching. Incline was the worst and I dropped it. When I bench it is ok, but on the next day it starts. Not when moving my arm, but if something challenges and needs more strength to be used.
I have tried benching the bar with pain. It occurs in upper part of the movement, fom halfway to locking out. The pain is basically in biceps. Sometimes at side deltoid area.
I have read on this site something about shoulder pain (rotator cuff) that occcurs in other places, like front delts. This can’t be a torn muscle due to the long aching-period. Although, my lifts aren’t imbalanced. My bench is weakest of the 3 lifts, I can barely bench my bodyweight. I have been doing external rotator exercises for 2-3 months and progressed in weight. Usually the pain subsides by the next upper body day (3-4 days) and I hit the chest again.
Can anyone say what could be the problem by this information? Btw. the pain is only when pressing, I can do pullups/rows and other things without problems.
