    About a month and a half ago, I was doing a shoulder workout where I strained the left part of my shoulders. At first, I thought it was no big deal -- until I started doing my normal chest workout. When I do flat bench, a sharp pain comes through the part I strained and I really can't do a full flat bench workout. The thing is, when I do incline/decline workouts or even if I do shoulder workouts, there is no pain. The pain only comes when I do flat bench. This has been going on ever since I strained my shoulders. What does OT suggest I do?

    I've been having elbow joint issues for the last few months which has hindered my workouts. I feel your pain :hs: I have issues curling, benching, and doing lat raises. Pisses me off like no other. Even took about a month off. I think I'm fucked. I had the same shoulder issue you had for a while too. Take some time off on anything that put strain on it

    What shoulder exercises did you do that day you hurt yourself?
    Anything behind the head?

    Don't experiment with new exercises and shit like that until you have been evaluated for a tear/strain.
