    I was doing wide grip pull ups, and decided to push myself a little harder than I probably should have :(. I heard a pop from my left shoulder, now it's really sore when I try to raise my arm to my side or if I try to work my rotator cuff. Does anyone have any suggestions for healing from this? Thank you advance :hs:

    Only thing you can do really is wait it out... don't use it and just let it heal...

    Pretty sure pushing myself to the brink of near death on wide-grip pullups was the culprit for my shoulder injury as well.

    Best things to do:

    Take a week or two off to let it heal up, get back into the gym and only do exercises that don't cause ANY and I mean ANY physical pain or discomfort.
    I made the mistake of "pushing through the pain" and because of that it took nearly 6 months to heal when it probably would have only been a few weeks had a done it right to begin with.

    Also, seeing a doctor isn't a bad idea either.
