Whenever I do military press my right shoulder hurts. It hurts right when I lock out the movement at the top. It feels like a deep sharp pain in the top middle part of the shoulder. I think it’s a “bone” issue rather than tissue/muscle. The weird thing is that it only hurts when I use the barbell. Dumbbells are no problem. It seems like the barbell is forcing a movement that my shoulder doesn’t like.
I’ve sometimes felt the same pain when doing pull ups without warming up enough. I have recently started lifting weights after a 6 month break so this is not an issue of over training.
Oh and one more thing. I have very “loose” scapulas. If I sit I can push my elbows against my quads to make my scapulas stick out so it looks like I have wings. Maybe this has something to do with it?
This sucks balls cause I really wanna use the barbell instead of dumbbells. I just started on JW’s 5/3/1.
Any suggestions on how to fix this?
