I’ll get right to the point. I have some pain in my shoulder only when doing pushing exercise. I have zero pain on a daily basis only when pushing. Gave up benching for two weeks now and figured I would give it a shot today.
Before heading to the gym I decided to test the shoulder by doing some pushups. Bad move!! Could not do 2! Pain felt like I was stabbed. I am fine until the elbow and shoulder form a 90 degree bend (chest can not touch the floor)anything after that wow! I have read Creesseys article on the rotator cuff and plan on doing some of it starting tomorrow. Now for my questions.
- If their was something torn in the shoulder wouldn’t pain be constant?
2.Should I still bench bringing the bar down until till arms are at a 90 degree bend,no pain to that point?
- Alternative exercises for chest?
- Guy at the gym told me to do some rear delt work for the rhomboids which will help take the “imbalance” off the shoulder…thoughts?
Sorry for all the questions just getting frustrated as hell with this shoulder and my doctor sucks so that is not an option.
