    i get this mad sting on the 'inside' of my shoulder on the top where it connects to the arm or so. only happens on incline.. is it rotator cuff? pain goes away if i dont do my max. I could push through it but am afraid to

    anyone know what it is? i have a feeling its rotator cuff cause whenever i used to swing a baseball bat my shoulder would make a crunching noise (same shoulder)

    Go to the Dr.

    I just went a month ago. I can't do shit for 6 weeks, well about 2 more weeks. Not even a push up...I have bursitis. He said since I came in early it should heal on it's own.

    .


    This happened when I first started out, so I just didn't do them for a while and I guess by bringing up my back and shoulder strength it fixed the prob. I do them sometimes now and never get pain :dunno:

    oh i'm the same way. If I'm doing something easy enough for 5+ reps I can take it to near-failure till my form craps out and it starts to hurt. :dunno: If I do Incline I do it with DBs these days and only as a repitition exercise.

    What are you doing for shoulders, and how often do you do them?

    WAT?

    I switched to suicide grip on incline presses a while ago and no loger experience and pain in my front delts. My front delt's used to always get jacked up when doing incline presses.

    Reverse pec deck. Or do them with db's facing down on an incline bench.

    [FONT=verdana, helvetica, arial][SIZE=-1]What I propose you do is re-evaluate your training methodologies and ask yourself if the lift from the incline overcoming a static resistance is necessary to your goals in the discipline of sarcoplasmic hypertrophy training for the structures of the organism. I urge you to think of the issue of technique existing in a vacuum. I also urge that you read the findings of anyone that has an Eastern European surname and then, and only then, will you be able to design a programme that is effective for your said goals.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    I used to get the exact same pain when I worked Chest/tris following shoulder day. I switched leg day between shoulders and chest and havent had any problems recently.

    Its only seemed to come back when I go too heavy on shoulder day or am pushing heavy weight on incl with minimal warm up (duh).

    With the exception of flat bench, I only get pain on my pressing movements when I have been lazy about my warm-up.
