Shoulder Problems

Alright I've tried ignoring it for a while and hoped it would just disappear, but my shoulder is really starting to piss me off. When I do certain exercises (mainly pullups and decline bench) I get a shooting pain through my left shoulder. It usually feels fine, and the weird thing is I don't have any problems when I do exercises that target my shoulder. What the hell should I do?

This is a common problem, this is your body telling you your doing something wrong, good idea looking for help.

I'm gonna throw a wild guess here and say you have a high bench press and focus on your bench press, and maybe military presses.

Basically, your deltoids are pulling your shoulders forward and taking on to much of the load. So rather then your pectoral muscles getting stimulated, your shoulders are being over stimulated and could possibly cause serious injury.

This could be a problem with your form, and also an under development of your rear deltoids. Basically what your going to want to do is do exercises that will bring your shoulders backwards.

(Ie, power clean, dead lift, bent over rows. and my favorite (Works lats and back shoulder muscles the dumbell pull over.)

Also, try moving your grip on the bar to a more comfortable position.

Last but not least, a simple test to see if your shoulders are rounded to far forward, is to just place your arms at your sides and let them go limp to natural position holding a pen in each hand. if the pens point in towards your body then shoulders are rounded forward. If pens point straight ahead, then shoulders are fine.

Actually that sounds about right. I don't really consider my bench press "high" but it is probably my best lift. Actually, I can bench about as much as I can squat (which really says more about how bad my squats are). A lot of times when my shoulder does start to hurt, I do kinda feel my chest coming forward unnaturally (it's always the left side).

I did the pen thing and they pointed straight.

well, you did know where they were supposed to be pointing lol, might have had a sub-conscious effect.

Doesn't matter, pull them shoulders back!

Also, if it is a SEVERE problem definitely go to Doctor make sure you don't have a problem with rotator cuff. If its just a slight pain while lifting, go light with benching for a bit and focus on pulling them shoulders back..

Yeah, I've been trying to work my upper back a little bit more lately. Mostly because I'm going to get a tattoo on my back and I want it to look good, but now I have even more reason to work on it.

I tried pullups the other day and it was slightly better than it was when I created the thread. Lately I've just been asking my training partner to hold my feet up to make it easier, and just do that until my shoulder can take my whole body weight.

I started to, but I haven't been able to go to the gym for like a week. I've only been able to do shit like pushups recently. After my essay is due on Tuesday I should have more time.
