  1. Shoulder pain


    Anybody get shoulder pain while doing flat barbell press? The pain I get is like on the inside of my shoulder. Any suggestions?


  2. Hmmm,I'm not sure about that but why not try another flat press exercise and see if the pain is still occuring or not? like db flat press and/or machines.

  3. Used to get shoulder pain before I learned how to bench properly. Now I haven't had any problems. Also make sure to keep your upper back/rear delts up to par with your chest or else you'll definitely have problems.

  4. Using dumbbells could also help ease the pain of it continues.

  5. I've tried flat db press and I still get the pain in my one shoulder. But doing incline and decline or even flys doesn't bother it Really weird

  6. Ive tried flat db press and I still get the pain in my one shoulder But doin incline or decline and even flat flys doesn't bother it jus flat press Also I was wondering if I needed to work on upper back and deltoid dev. As a priority Before I try doin more weight with chest

  7. Sorry for the double message. Thought i cancelled first one phone was actin up

  8. Also. How do you bench properly?

  9. Ya I get pain on the flat aswell so I said "FUUAAARRRCKK IT!!" I can do inclines without pain and they seem to hit the muscle just as well. I probably won't do flat bench for a long time. Feels like my cuffs doesnt want to perform when flat. But it is what it is, There's a few exercises I just never do because it isn't compatible with how my joints and cuffs want to move. I just find some other exercise to hit the group.

  10. Yea it feels like a pin goin into my cuff when I press up from flat. There's a lot of things I cant do cuz my shoulders feel like there goina pop right out

  11. Warm up rotator cuff exercises before working out. Stop pressing movements for two weeks and just do back/rear delts and legs for those two weeks and see how it is from there. Face pulls, rear delt flies, bent over rows. I would do the bent over rows more upright so you can focus on your upper back.

    I have the same problem. Happens with dips on occasion but mostly flats, bar or bell, doesn't matter still hurts, also shoulder press is pretty painful. I noticed it becoming worse when i dont have enough incline on my shoulder press, gotta have your slight incline or i SNAP my sheet up. But I just avoid them, I'm still gaining strength and mass in my shoulders. Just comes along with other excercises. Keep training man and good luck.

  13. Thanks bro I'll keep all that in mind. Train hard my friend

  14. Use this as a warm-up for the shoulders:

    and then watch this 10x/day everyday until you can recall every second of it:

  15. Thanks for the video link

  16. Try doing internal/external shoulder rotation exercises (google variations) to strengthen your rotator cuffs etc. Shoulder pain won't just disapear, so its best to get it sorted as soon as you can.

    Proper bench press technique, dipping techniques etc. will help ease the stress off the shoulders but may not solve the problem. Depending on what the cause is.

    Tried these awhile back and it made it way worst! I'd incorporate them in my warm up and I couldn't ever finish my sets without almost severing my shoulder. Some people have bad joints in shoulder, some ankles, some knees, some elbows. !!You cant fix everything, and people in this forum that are giving advice need to realize that!!. some things you have to learn to deal with and work the exercise that don't cause you pain. Everyone's body is built differently.. Maybe your not built to isolate shoulders.. Those movement might not ever be possible. But like YOU said, "train hard my friend".

    P.s. sorry about the rant, test booster is starting to kick!

    Most don't know how to do them properly in terms of technique, weight, and reps. You're essentially arguing against pre/rehabbing injuries and imbalances.

    No, I DID NOT say it doesn't work. I said it made MINE worst. I'd never disregard rehab, its the building blocks of muscle construction, I'm just saying this in particular made my injury worst . I don't want to argue, I'm just giving my opinion. Call it Broscience if it makes anyone feel better:P and don't take my advice if you don't want to, it's ONLY advice like yours, go ahead an 'low weight' and rotate that shoulder till it falls out haha.. "You can do whatever the FUUAAARRRK you wanna do.."

    That's funny because I've actually rehabbed my shoulders using the techniques like the ones in the video I posted. The difference between my advice and yours is education in that I actually know what I'm talking about on this topic.

    Solid advice when it comes to lifting shouldn't revolve around "avoiding the pain." When you're in pain it's your bodies way of saying that something is messed up. I'm pretty sure ignoring what your body is telling you isn't leading you onto the path of well being. It might not bother you now but you'll feel otherwise in 10-20 years from now.

    You didn't offer advice; you added commentary. Advice would have been how to rectify his situation.
