Pain in shoulder while doing chest

  1. Pain in shoulder while doing chest


    Hey all. I have been experiencing pain in my shoulders while benching, doing flys, almost any chest excersize. On back days or shoulder days i have no pain at all. Especially after bench or incline my shoulder hurts.

    at first it felt like a cramped muscle but when the pain got worse it started feeling like maybe its my joints. any feedback?

    note: im 21 years old, i do not take fish oils or scissus


  2. Any chance it is your rotocuff and just the angle in which you are benching? Is it more noticable with a bar or dumbells? And any more noticable on decline, incline, flat, butterflies, etc?

  3. Does this feel as if it's IN your shoulder? Or outside around the muscle?

    I get the same pain, right in the center inside of my shoulder. With some very lengthy stretching and a warm shower it totally goes away. Does'nt come back for maybe 2 workouts.

    Shouder dislocations. had same problem, started doing those, problem solved. that is of course, if you dont have some sort of underlying problem.

  5. hurts from all chest excersizes. i think the machine flys aggrivate it the worst. yesterday i started off with incline bar doing 185 and immediately it hurt, and it was like that for the rest of my workout.

    it feels like its around my shoulder, particularly the rear deltoid and even into the shoulderblade sometimes. if i massage it with my hand it starts to feel better but i dunno if its the actual massage or if its the time. because the pain does subside fairly quickly, within 5 minutes. but it flares up immediately after another set!

  7. probly its a strained ac joint or you have a tear.
    stop working it out for a few days
    should get it checked
    the tear could be anywhere
    bad bad bad

    why r boy such idiots and continue to keep working out
    making **** worse.

  8. Try a light warm up, followed by a chest and should stretch. Pull your shoulders in whilst benching.

  9. RIGHT RIGHT

    Subscapularis look it up if u dont no

  12. you know what i read up on that. i think your right. but my pain is very minor and almost no existant unless i use super heavy weight. so my guess is that its a very mild injury and i better quit now before it gets worse!

  13. Ye u shud stop. it could start making noice. and just weakens it and tears or scar tissue idk. get it chekd too.
    my knee suks and makes noise and when i get all all fours my right knee cap slips and i dont have good balance. or when i do lungdges it is harder wablly.

  14. how long do you think it would take to heal? if i take a week or 2 off and it doesnt get better i should see a doctor huh?

  15. I have this same issue, Just went to the chiropractor yesterday and he explained what is wrong with my shoulder. He did some adjustments and my shoulder feels a lot better. I havent tested it out yet to see if it hurts while benching though. Tuesday is my chest day so i'll let u know then how it feels. It may be your best bet to get your shoulder realigned.

    I thought i was going to need surgery, he said he could fix it on the spot, i was very relieved to hear that.

  16. yea but i go to a chiropracter to and sumtimes they are in it for the money.. ur right it might need to be aligned but benching alot is bad. and it might be more then then that go to a sports medicine dotor or w.e to get a thuro exam dont work out on it ull cause scar tissue and that is hard to fix
    and as for joeymuts ur chiro is an idiot if he did not remind you to rest it for several weeks. ur just going to mess it up again. one adjustment does not do the miracle trick

    and if u do continue do less weight

  17. hey thanks for the feedback i will definately try that. ill call some chiropractor places right now. but in the meanwhile i read on the net that pushups shouldnt bother it or one arm dumbell press so maybe ill try that until he can fix it.

  18. I think I have the same issue in my right shoulder. Does it hurt if you extend your arm outwards, then while extended, turn your hand (as if trying to open a door)? Another, is when you bring your arm across your your chest (as if hugging yourself with one arm). Mine has gotten a bit better since taking super cissus rx.
    What I realized, is that if I do dumbbell presses, not to come down too low. I try not to pass parallel when doing those. I have stopped free weight chest exercises for now. Just doing seated machine presses. For pushups, consider doing diamond type.

  19. try t-nation [dot] com
    replace the dot with a .

    search bench press blow outs

    good info

  20. why does this bull**** happen to me.... i never get injured. i think ill take argenine to increase bloodflow and heal that **** faster!

  21. a thought: could be biceps tendon inflammation....alot of people mistake for a shoulder injury...i had the same symptoms...couldnt do any pushing movements...forget flies or pec deck...pulling was ok....spent 5 weeks doing back and legs till it healed...happens from overuse...

  22. very possable, appreciate the input. one way or another i gotta lay off the bench press. all well, hello turtel shell back good by chest!

  23. Are you doing military or over-head presses? If so, lay off those.

    I don't know man, I hit shoulders up the next day and i feel great no shoulder problems at all, I think you may have it backwards bro, a few people i've talked to said Just one trip to the chiropractor for an alignment is all you need. They tell you to come back so they can make money. I'll be going back twice this week just cause it felt great to have everything cracked and i want to have everything working right. After this I'll cut it down to once a month.

  27. i have the same problem. i stopped going all the way down and touching my chest. once u go past parallel it starts 2 lift ur shoulders so go about 1 inch form ur chest

  28. yeah but then you cant bounce it off your chest, so you can do more weight to look cooler in front of people!!lol lol.

  29. Might need to strengthen your shoulders, as others have said i find this to minimize pain.

    Back when i truly didnt know how to bench press i used alot of shoulders. Something that my workout partner thought was correct until he benched 235 with his shoulders injuring himself and being put on the self for 6 months.

    Guess now he'll listen to me.

  30. buster,

    I'm a nationally certified massage therapist. I've dealt with problems similar to this.

    Earlier in the thread someone suggested that your subscapularis was possibly torn. While this is a possiblity, I tend to believe that the muscles which protract the scapula(google: protraction of scapula) are more likely the culprits(serratus anterior and pec major/minor). You should get a massage and mention your problems to your massage therapist.. ask them to work on your SITS muscles(rotator cuff), your serratus anterior, and your pec minor. Get them to go real deep especially on the pec minor. You will be sore for a day or two from the massage if they did it right. After 3-4 days, go back in the gym, do your chest workout AFTER doing a lot of stretching right before. Bet you it helps.

    Also, it was mentioned that you should go to a chiropractor. I just wanted to add that ALMOST ALL of the well-known professional bodybuilders in the world are under chiropractic care. They don't just go to waste their money... chiropractic is essential for us weightlifters.. I get adjusted 2-3 times a week. (it doesn't hurt that I do massage at a chiropractors office and get free adjustments )
