Hi, I’ve recently started Snatches. I’m taking it easy, only doing with empty bar or very light weight to get the form down. However, I’ve started to get some top shoulder pain. It hurts when I raise my arm to snatch overhead position – like a wide grip overhead press. Curiously, normal or close grip overhead position doesn’t give any pain. Here is an image that shows the approximate pain area and affected arm position in my left shoulder: http://i.imgur.com/5qJE5z8.jpg
Indeed, it’s not on front of the shoulder, but on top. It doesn’t hurt (or hurts very very little) in rest, the pain pretty much comes only with that arm position. Didn’t have it before, snatches started it. Any idea what is it about?
