    So my pec isnt most likely causing my increased internal rotation in my humerus?

    No it could, ull be eliminating it by working at 90 degrees abduction, better isolating the subscap u just have to watch pinching in that position (hawkins kennedy etc all test at 90 degrees elevation)

    And by the way, if ur subscap was tight, you wouldn't lose internal rotation, you would lose external rotation ( your not going to lose the motion the muscle produces, tight quad does not result in loss of hip flexion, u lose hip ext) the loss in IR comes from posterior shoulder tightness

    Which comes from a misaligned resting scap postion (winged and abducted scap results in post shoulder tightness)

    Yes i know. Thats why i neglected subscap work because my shoulder is already internally rotated!

    So pretty much stretch lats, pecs, front delts and strengthen serratus and rhomboids and middle an lower traps!?

    Yes, id recommend following

    Modified sleeper: 60,90,120 for posterior shoulder tightness (post shoulder tightness leads to post/supero humeral translation and resulting anterior laxity)

    Pec minor stretch: 30. Degrees abduction

    Long head of triceps stretch

    Neuromuscular re ed of scap stabilization: this must take place before strengthening to ensure proper muscle firing sequence:
    Pushups with plus, horizontal abduction,scap retraction, close grip rowing

    Rtc strengthening: strengthening infra and supra and sub

    Incorporation into movement patterns: work firing sequence into common patterns you perform

    That's what most do. Yet the give away is great ER and poor IR(often), because all surrounding syngerists and antagonist will be upregulated.

    The rotator cuff muscles are the only ones perfectly attached for pulling the humerus without potentially pulling it out of the GF, so when, for example, the lats, teres major and pecs are up regulated (especially the first two), (or there's serious restrictions in mobility) it may force the humeral head out of centration in the Glenoid fossa.

    Poor scapular articulation may do the same. A common impingement problem is when the scapula is elevated during OHP, rather than bracing around the thorax.

    Up regulation of the synergists and antagonists to create stability is usually the culprit of chronic tightness in the shoulder.

    I know yall cant diagnose me cause you cant evaluate me in person, but is there any test, exercise, stretch, etc that i can perform and let yall know the results that can diagnose my problem? Im heck bent on figuring this out, and between the 3 of us i think we can diagnose my problem and then come up with a plan to fix it!

    I can pull out a goniometer if needed to measure internal and external rotation if needed!

    The IR is almost definitely a subscap problem. However the scapula may be contributing the dysfunction. You already got good advice from braski regarding training the rtc and leveling scapula. Put a pic that shows your posture and it will be easier to give a better diagnosis. Also a pic showing position of your shoulder blades when relaxed.

    Good points kt:

    Id measure:
    Both arms
    Make sure u do these properly with stabilization of coracoid on IR
    IR
    ER
    Total arc of motion (ir plus er)
    Flexion

    Hawkins kennedy
    Neers impingement
    Passive er to end range for internal impingement
    Horizontal abduction to end range then full passive er
    Full can
    Bear hug test in three positions, lift off
    Apleys scratch
    Full can

    Labral testing
    O briens
    Jerk test
    Clunk test
    Anterior/post apprehensions
    Etc

    All in magee orthopedics pull up book perform tests report results, there are more you can add in

    Suspicion is an articular sided rtc pathology either rubbing or fraying on post humerus/labrum with or without concomitant posterior labral issue

    I have to say after the first half of this thread I had to start using Google to understand what anyone is saying here but very good info. What field do you guys work in if you don't mind me asking? I'm ready to post a pic of my posture to be diagnosed myself. Lol

    Educating yourself is incredibly important for staying healthy. So keep googling buddy!

    Aaahh that explains it. Good luck on your shoulder bro, mine is feeling better lately. I did a 4 day workout week last week and just skipped doing tris/bis to lessen the work load.

    It is I agree but these type of injuries you're not fully aware until it really happens. That's why I'm starting to learn the functionality of our shoulders in depth so I can avoid it in the future.

    It may be hard to believe, but my shoulder is lots better in like a week in a half! Just want to thank yall for that! Ive been stretching, working my subscap, infra, and supra, also im doing the sleeper stretch and it has helped tons! Also been strengthening serratus and doing some soft tissue massage with a tennis ball! Thanks again guys! Just curious, do yall think the subscap work or the sleeper stretch has helped the most?

    Serratus, subscap weakness and tight ER are very common culprits. Happy to hear that you're better man
