I hear ya bro. I started doing 50 pullups at the end of every workout and I have noticed a slight difference. We got the same pain though. It’s like a dull, nagging pain that sometimes hurts while even sitting on the couch. I sleep on my side (on that shoulder) and wonder if that may have something to do with it. Part of me just wants to push through it in the hope that it will eventually go away, but I think that is somewhat ignorant thinking. Better to get it fixed now before it becomes a BIG problem.
Really curious if doing band work and cable internal/external rotation with very light weight is still beneficial even though there is pain while doing the movement. I’m going to continue with the pullups and add some rotation work and some face pulls to the head, neck, and chest and see where that gets me.
Let me know if you figure anything out and I’ll be sure to do the same. [/quote]
I just laid off of everything for another week or so, and then started doing a mix of those scapular pullups (the straight-arm ones) and regular weighted pullups.
I did a session of power cleans and push press last night – first workout session in awhile – and my shoulders didn’t feel so great during the workout, mostly during the rack for the clean. I alternated sets with scapular pullups.
After the workout, everything felt like before – as in, nothing felt worse.
Mostly though, things haven’t really gotten better, even with the rest.
