My shoulders been bothering me too at the end of bench press and during upright rows and power cleans. It's weird though because I've had two shoulder surgeries on my left shoulder but my right shoulder is the one that gets irritated. I'm gonna take a day or two off I guess.

If you are feeling it during power cleans then you are jerking the bar up via an upright row motion and not using your hips to drive the bar upwards.
Do some remedial work in the meantime - face pulls, scapula depressions, external shoulder rotations, etc.

I don't feel it when I start with power cleans. But when I go heavy on benching 260+ it feels like an ache on the lateral aspect of the anterior sections of the joint. Then when I do power cleans they get worse. But on PC only days it's A-Ok.
Kinda confusing I guess.

It sounds like classic impingement of the supraspinatus tendon (one of the rc muscles).
Do you keep your elbows in and a narrower grip when you bench (i.e.: athletic bench), or do you use a powerlifting (wide grip, elbows in) or do you flare them out in poor technique?

I'll try and make a video to put up on here for everyone to critique when I get my workout in today. Which view would be best from an observational standpoint?

Today's the day....I finally put up 300lbs on bench press!
Other than that it was a pretty uneventful time. My lifts have gone up slightly I worked up to 325 doing 5x5s on squat and 235x4 (failed on the 5th) for powerclean. I've never put up 300 on bench though so I'm pretty excited about that.

i cleaned for real today for the first time, i started with the bar and worked my way up to 185, what is a good goal for me?

Back when I was in high school the big boys and lbs would put up (ballpark) 225-250ish. Maybe one person got 265 or so. Powerclean is one of those lifts that are super beneficial (fun even) if you use correct form. If you've never done them before though, worry more about using a weight that you can handle correctly, rather than how many plates you can lift.

yupppers, thats why i started with the bar abd went untill the form was going somewhat, its going to be a main theme of my workouts

It's one of the most beneficial lifts for football. But it can be hard to find your sweet spot because (for me at least) I feel my form goes to sh*t when I go too light. keep up the hard work big guy
