That’s a lot of good info.
I definitely don’t want to keep doing these exercises that keep causing pain but I’m not sure of other effective exerices that can replace those because those seem to be fairly core shoulder exercises.[/quote]
yup, i understand.
the sad fact is that, pending on how the reduce ROM/reduce Load to get out of pain goes, you may need just not to do loaded shoulder work for awhile - i know that sounds awful but sometimes that’s the way.
if that’s the case, keeping the pain free area of the joint and related areas mobile is still good and helpful for healing.
so working with shoulder cam shafts, shoulder circles - again in a ROM where they don’t cause any tweaks - can be very helpful.
there are lots of sources for shoulder (and full body) dynamic joint mobility. my bias is z-health here because it’s very specific. if you’re interested, there’s more on
z-health approach here (with videos)
and on the disk with those drills here:
best with your rehab.
no pain…no pain.
Today was another shoulder day and after I was done with Lat Raises the pain started. I watched some videos and saw how I could improve my form but that wasn’t the case. I’m going to try them one more time with a reduced load and really just try and have perfect form and see what happens.
On a positive and strange note… After I finished that set I went on to do High Pulls and Low Pulls. After my second superset of High / Low Pulls my shoulders felt good again and I went on to finish my workout with no pain in my shoulder. I have some mild sworeness now but nothing like it’s been. It kind of doesn’t make sense as to why those two exercises would have that affect on me. [/quote]
dude that you’re still saying “Today is a shoulder day” when you’re still saying you’ve had pain and are having pain is the issue
The thing is that right now there are no more shoulder days
if you insist on going after your normal routine, you’re making it worse rather than healing.
It really makes perfect sense that you’d be feeling this way if you have tendon issues - it’s totally common to have pain afterwards especially with a tendonopathy.
checking the form recommendation was for AFTER your body has had a chance to heal.
drop the shoulder/arm stuff. you have your whole life ahead of you; you can afford some down time now to come back strong later: give your tendons a chance to repair.
mobility work, great. load such that this is the pattern. not great.
but since i fear i’m verging on repeating myself, i shall leave off
best on your rehab path
MC is spot on. You have to change your mindset right now from “training through this” to “rehabilitation”. It’s very difficult to do, but much better than going under the knife or not being able to train properly in the future.
Pain is never something you should ignore or try to train through.
