    I recently started lifting. I'm doing 2 exercises for shoulders: lifting weight parallel to body, and lifting weight perpendicular to body.

    I do 5 sets of 15 perp. lifts and 15 paral. lifts, and 20 pushups/20 squats in between each set.

    After the second day of this, I woke up and my shoulder hurt like hell :wtc:, I couldn't rotate my arms, lift them, move them etc. It's been 4 days, and the pain is still there. What do you guys think? It doesn't feel like soreness... Is it serious?

    I use free weights. I stand and lift the weight (elbows locked) straight up to shoulder level in front of me - that's what I meant by perpendicular. As in the final position of my hands is perpendicular to body.

    by parallel I mean lifting weight from my side, so my final position is like jesus on the chris :hs:

    sorry for the poor explanation

    seriously though, if you really can't lift your arms, call a doctor.

    Give it a few weeks or see a doctor. I have been out since January because of back and shoulder injuries. :(
