  • On going shoulder issues

    I had this issue for like 2 years and i keep giving up on resistance training because of it. i first noticed it when I started resistance training I would just walk in the gym and do random things it feels like rotator cuff issue it’s on the backside of the shoulder some mild pain discomfort and clicking even durning the quarantine or when I stop resistance training it’s still there and I’ll have random days where it doesn’t really bother me I’ve tried training through it before nothing seems to help for more than a few days if it helps I’m pretty untrained if that helps

    Hey Bromarr15 - thanks for the questions. Sorry to hear about the persistent shoulder symptoms. We did an entire shoulder series that starts HERE. We also have an article out on training with symptoms that you can read HERE for general advice. Finally, given persistence of symptoms and what sounds like some difficulties with engaging in activity to tolerance, you'd likely benefit from a consultation with us so we can provide individualized advice and get a game plan to help move towards your goals. If you are interested in a remote consult with us, please complete our intake paperwork HERE.

      Late reply I do plan on getting a consultation but in the meantime should I go to the gym and avoid doing movements that cause shoulder pain/discomfort and stick to rows squats and deadlifting?

        From the pain in training article Dr Mike linked above:
        One approach we typically do NOT recommend for most routine aches and pains in the gym is absolute rest.
        Our first and most important step is to find our “entry point” into the rehabilitation process. The usual approach for determining this is to find a type and dose of exercise stimulus that results in either improved symptoms or stable symptoms over the subsequent 24-48 hours after training.

          Yeah I read that I’m just having difficulty finding anything that doesn’t really irritate my shoulders so I’m not sure where to start

        Bromarr15 in your OP it sounded like you were avoiding movements associated with *any* pain. I'm still not quite sure if that's what you mean, which kind of illustrates one the pitfalls of giving individualised advice via forum vs a consult. Anyway, I would apply the steps in this video to the movements in question. E.g. if bench wasn't tolerable --> bench with lower load --> pin bench --> ?machine chest fly. I think that'll give you a good place to start until you can get a consult.

          I basically stop when the pain starts getting bad it’s also not really tied to any specific movement which makes it confusing when gyms were closed I still experienced it I’ll watch the video and read the articles until I can get a consultation should be soon anyways thanks

        I am new to the forum, not sure where to put this question for your input. I am 56, and I still compete for 2-3 times PL a year. That being said, I went to my ortho to get my MRI read regarding my shoulder. I seems my bicep tendon is going to pop at any time with some other problems he can just debris it and clean it. He basically told me, I have 2 options. 1. get it reattached with a 16-week recovery OR 2. Don' t reattach the tendon and let it migrate down. with 2 week recovery. Considering my age and the fact I don't want to lose any/very little strength. I don't care about aesthetics. Can you share your experiences and advice? TIA
