I posted about 6 weeks ago regarding my shoulder hurting on all pressing movements. I tried a bunch of the advice floating around (including articles published on this site) to improve the pain, e.g. light weight shoulder rotation exercises, stretching, rotating a broom over my head (terrible idea), etc. However, the pain continued.
After speaking with this guy from the gym he suggested doing rear-delt work on the pec dec machine. I have been doing that exercise (3 X 12) and really concentrating on pulling with my back and not my arms almost everyday I am in the gym. Shit feels great. Currently, I am back to benching (light weight) and performing dips. Icing after everyday seems to help in recovery.
When dealing with injury and/or pain, you really need to listen to your own body and figure out what will help you - not necessarily what the experts claim.
Hay jpcrew96, I was just about to post a question until I came across your post. Not having read your origional I am not sure what your pain was like but here is my deal...I only have pain when benching or doing pushups and then only when I bring my elbow past my shoulder,if that makes sense. For example when benching i can only lower the bar to about 6 inches from my chest or push ups i can do no problem but can no longer touch my chest to the floor with out a really intense pain in right shoulder? After the sets, pain stops completely after about 5 seconds. Seems like when the shoulder is under load and the elbow is past the shoulder. Seems strange that i don't have pain all the time. If this is similar to your issue any suggestions would be great. Starting to get discouraged with it but yet its not getting any worse or better for that matter.
