    help me please (shoulder injury)


    my left shoulder has been bothering me for about 2 months ever since a guy let a dumbbell slip backwards while spotting me---I had let it heal and it felt better--until this evening when I attempted to do a medium warm up set with 70's for overhead presses (seated) my shoulder told me "Check yoself son!!!" and wouldn't allow me to even get it above shoulder height to start the range of motion--so I did the smart thing (for once) and stopped training the shoulder---basically, I can train back without a problem, arms without trouble, and legs...how much mass/strength do you think I will lose if I forego chest and shoulder workouts for about 2 months and just try to maintain wmy whole body using heavy squats and deadlifts? I am 5'11'' 245 now or does anyone know of any chest/shoulder routine that wil not cause my shoulder pain? thank you all for reading this post

    it could be a rotator cuff injury. I had a partial tear of my rotator cuff and had the same exact problem as you. For me the only way to beat it was time off unfortunately - that and VERY light rehab exercises with training rubber bands.

    I think a visit to the doc would be helpful. Finding out where the pain in your shoulder is will obvioiusly give you a better idea of how to rehab it and how long to take off.
    Good luck bro
