    Whenever, I do wide grip bench press (with relatively low weight) on the smith machine, I feel a sharp pain at the top of my left shoulder.

    Anyone have any ideas as to the cause?

    well the wider your grip, the more stress it's going to put on the shoulder capsule

    I always jock ART. It worked very well for me. Don't go to a general practitioner, go to a PT. Its stopped agonizing pain, minor issues, and corrected some problems I didn't know I had. I have no pain and a full range of motion again.
