Hi guys, basically I’ve had a bit of bother with my right shoulder for a few months now. It started gradually in about September last year when overhead pressing but me being a fool pressed through the pain and hey presto it got worse. I now do not overhead press which is very sad am it is in fact my favorite lift. the pain itself is hard to describe but its whenever i press anything above a flat press, I tried db press at 10 degree incline today and bam, its there again. flat bench however is fine. the pain is like something need to click in my shoulder joint and gradually builds in intensity the longer i put myself through it.
basically 531 since June last year, before that it was just standard body part splits. at the time of the injury i was pressing 60kg for 5.
What I’ve done about it so far:
stopped pressing since about November. continued to bench though as that is pain free. started alot of stretching and rehab work such as wall angels, lat and chest stretches, YWTLs and other band work, but after about one month sweet duck all has gotten better. I am however more flexible, but that’s all very well and good when my shoulder still doesn’t work properly.
help me Tnation your my only hope
