    Fucked it up last Thursday (4/27) incline pressing. Was sore as shit that Friday, and progressively got better, but still couldn't lift on it as of Friday.

    Went to the doc this morning, luckily he thinks I won't need any physical therapy as of now. Gave me some anti-inflammatory meds ("Mobic" Meloxicam 7.5 mg) for a week, gotta go back next to hear the verdict :noes:

    Yet again another week of no upper body, I hate this shit :hs:

    I wanted to go to the doctor this morning too. Ran 30 min to get there, I wanted to move a little, they told me they don't take anyone after 10h30 even though they go for lunch at 12 only :squint: Had to run back and come back this afternoon, ran again and there was a friggin 2h wait :squint:
    So no doctor today... Thank god it was a day off and I like running from time to time... I wasted half of my day though.

    I totally gave up on any over head press type of excercise for about three months and focused on a couple rotator cuff excercises. I do them religiously and stop whatever excercise I am doing when they act up.

    The great benefit for me is that allowing them to heal + focusing on them has made my shoulder's a lot stronger than they ever were (I have been plagued by moderate-serious rotator issues since college). I got 60's up x5 (Arnolds) today since I felt ready to try something overhead :o

    Anyway, don't be impatient, that always got me, and good luck.

    Thanks.

    For what it's worth, I did it on a barbell incline. I think I'm going to switch to dumbbells now for the time being, until I can get myself back on track for ease of movement.

    I will also look into a lot of those rotator cuff exercises. From what I hear, it's good to be patient with this type of thing and get back to 100% eventually... then to rush it, and fuck it up worse for the rest of your life.

    For whatever reason I cannot do DB presses. They KILL my shoulders. This is contrary to everything I have ever read :dunno:

    I feel your frustration though :hs:

    I have 2 good articles, with exercises bookmarked at work.

    I'll post them tomorrow.

    Also, sounds like you should take some time off if it's everytime you do shoulder exercises.

    This was a good thread I found on BB concerning the rotator cuff- a few good links were posted as well.
