    Shoulder Pain


    Have a shoulder issue

    Cannot squat because my right arm will not bend to reach the bar, pain originates at front of the arm just were the delt attaches to the arm.
    I can bench press but not overhead press. Any ideas?

    Did it just start happening, or do you remember straining it?

    Perhaps try trigger points & stretches after in the entire arms, chest/pecs & shoulders, both arms, whether or not it is only the one arm.
    Maybe some L-flyes after workout, very light weight ie: not more than #5er for a few sets of 10.

    Cool, what can I do instead of squats until my arm heals?

    Leg presses
    Dead lifts
    DB deads or like a suitcase pull...
    ie: Trap bar deads (off blocks maybe to get a deeper ROM)
    Do front squats hurt too?

    Yeah they do. I tried squatting with the smith machine, used my wrist straps as "handles" so I wouldn't have to reach back, that was ok

    I guess moving the grip in and out on the bar does not help much eh?

    The grip hurts no matter how I move, and a saw Dave Draper's Top Squat and thought about that

    Try Bulgarian split squats with dumbells. Looks funny but very effective plus adds stability work for the leg in front
