I’ve always had a slight problem with my left shoulder, ever since a kid, but they couldn’t find anything wrong. It doesn’t really bother me at all unless I don’t workout. Sometimes I get an ache for a day or so, an upright row movement hurts a little.
Anyway I read a shoulder article here, in it, it compaired a powerlifters benchpress(elbows in) to a bodybuilding benchpress (elbows out), the elbows in is said to be better on the shoulders, I tried this and I am the opposite, I feel fine doing regular elbow out bench presses, but when I do elbows in with less weight I get a pain around my front delt, I also get this with close-grip benchpresses.
Any suggestions as to why it hurts when my elbows are in?
Dunno if stats will help any-
Bench 280lbx1,only happened once few months ago, havent made it since
Shoulder press 155lbx1
In current routine:Close grip bench 3x6 with 155lb, hurts left shoulder
