    No major injury, but wants me to take some antiinflammatories and rest before MRI or PT.

    I don't mind - I don't have broly goals, just health, but I was making decent progress on the bench, I don't want to feel like I am going to lose it all.

    Stupid dumbbells, here I come.

    Can't hold the bar - too much pressure on the shoulder when it is behind the back because of ROM, too much on front squats for the shoulder to handle.

    Per the doctor. Using the bar bell is forcing my hands to be perpendicular to my body. With dumbells I'll be able to rotate my wrists as necessary to take the strain off.

    He just said to take 2 aleves 2 times a day.

    Like I said - this isn't a major injury, the XRay didn't reveal anything, so it's likely either rotator cuff or whatever the bicep tendon does to you. The problem is nothing 'caused' it - I've had it as long as I remember, I just didn't want to make it worse as I started getting a little heavier. The pain only occurs during lifting and odd ROMs, and doesn't usually stay.

    My best guess is that, since nothing has ever really caused it, that even if I stopped altogether for 4 weeks it wouldn't alleviate anything. He agreed, but suggested we try anyway. Thought that it is more than likely just an early degenerative type situation where I have some fraying tendons or something.

    You know a big part of the reason people suffer shoulder injuries is that the prime movers are too strong for the scapular and glenohumeral stabilizers right?

    Work the shit out of your upper back, and rotator cuff. Lots of scapular retraction, rotator cuff work, and external rotation.
