Goina b doin sum shoulders tomorrow I'm goina use all the tips I got from u guys and c what happens. Tore my back up today with no probs
Problem was though, that I had a developed chest but very underdeveloped shoulders because i was worried that hitting them while in pain would do more harm than good. I spent >6months only doing light shoulder work to build up the strength and help even out any imbalances (doing internal/external rotation work), now I have no pain in my shoulder. It took time to heal and I essentially had to stop training heavy because I didnt want my shoulders to lag even further behind but it was worth it in the end.
Also, im assuming by the OPs initial comment that the pain is muscle based and not joint based. If it is joint based, then perhaps the best advice is to go to the physio (luckily for us in NZ, rehab work is essentially free so I go every 6 months just for a checkup). If its muscle based, then the root cause could just be muscualr imbalances or poor technique. Either way, the pain isnt to be ignored.
You sound like me when I first started training.
Fortunately for me I'm in the end phase of recovery but I'd recommend the steps I took.
Sounds like you've over worked your front delt, causing that rotation and muscle imbalance.
I'd work more rhomboids, rear delt and trapz to get that posture corrected.
Secondly I'd be inclined to say you've workout out your delts and had muscle hypertrophy without giving much attention to the smaller stability muscles such as super spinatus / cuff.
I'd incorporate the stability work into your workout right now and stretch often, you need that ROM. Keep bench and heavy weight at the rest and use cables for maintaining but for now that's your priority before it turns into a real nasty one.
Hope this helps buddy...
I'm a gym instructor not a physio btw
Jus got done doin shoulder and bi's Shoulders felt solid. Kind of a stupid question but what is the best rear deltoid work out? I am so thankful of all the advice that you guys have givin me I am relatively new to hittin the weights so all the tips I can get I greatly appreciate it!
Interesting thread.. I have minor pain when I'm flat/incline benching and when I'm doing shoulder presses with dumbbells or on the Smith Machine I have a weird shooting pain in my right front deltoid especially when I'm doing heavy weight.. Rear Deltoid workouts were not a problem that day.. But the thing is I never had a problem before that day, it just happened out of nowhere.. When i rotate my shoulders to warm up now i feel a minor cracking noise in my right shoulder.. What do u guys think? Should i rest it and do not bench or shoulder press and what are other things that will make it heal faster?
So it is not the rotator cuff? And what should I do to make it heal?
U mean I can use Motrin as an NSAID? I'll ice it, but what about rest bro?
Gotcha.. But the pain is been there for 9 days now.. So what's the best thing to do to get back killing it at the gym?
Thx for the info
