8 months ago when I first started lifting, I had terrible shoulder pains. Doing something like a tricep pressdown would cause extreme pain when I released the weight. I would have to slowly let go of the grip for less pain but it was still there just not as bad. This would last for days at a time and then come the next shoulder day, it would start all over again.
I could barely do anything with heavy weights. DB Press was agony! A friend of mine told me to do some rotator cuff work as a warmup before any session that involves my shoulders. After just a few weeks the pain had gone and I was finally lifting comfortably. As long as I keep doing these rotator cuff warmups I never get any pain, but there is still one exercise that hurts.
Actually, it more than just hurts. It feels like somebody is stabbing me in the shoulder over and over. The exercise where you take a close grip and lift the bar up to your chin? kills me!
I have no idea if its an exercise worthy of doing, but I tried it again just to see if it would still cause me pain. The pain feels deep and seems to be more in my left shoulder.
I do not want to ignore this and end up getting problems later on. I would rather just fix this now. Any of you ever get this before? Solution?
If I left anything out that would help, just say.
