    Pain in my shoulder when bench pressing
    I get a sharp pain in my left shoulder when bench pressing, it occurs when I bring the bar down to my chest and go to push back up. Anyone know why it is doing this? Am I overtraining? I work out about 5 times a week but only for 30-45 minutes because my arms get so tired. Should I take longer breaks between sets or what?

    join the fucking club. I started benching a few months ago for the first time in 5 years. I just wanted to say i did 405 which should not have been a problem after about 2 months of training. Well about one month in my shoulder was so fucked that i am never ever getting on a flat bench again. I wish i didn't let my ego get the best of me, because it still kind of hurts. My advice, stop benching, most people do after a few years, because so many people develop shoulder problems. If i watched everyone in my gym, i would have to say I have only seen about 2 or 3 guys workout with over three plates and i am one of them, why, because all the really strong guys do not mess around on the bench. Now if you are a powerlifter, that is a different story all together, lol.

    I had a similar problem in the AC joint in my left shoulder that got severe enough that I couldn't press anything. It hurt almost all the time, and it was hard to lift my arm. I got a bunch of therapy and laid off it for a month but that didn't cure it, it felt better when I went back to pressing but quickly degenerated again. I finally cured it with a cycle that included deca and gh.

    do some rotator cuff exercises and lay off the bench training for a few weeks.Shoulder inuries suck, they can take a long time to repair.
    Mine used to ache when I was on the phone, or even brushing my teeth.Throwing a ball overarm would really aggrivate too.

    jcp2, what do you do for chest exercises, if you don't mind me asking?

    Incline barbell was the bread and butter for a long time, now it is incline dumbell. I do alot of flyes, i use the hammer strength decline, and some cables every once in a while.

    most are going to say this seems weird but flat dumbells puts my shoulder in a weird position. I don't really do any flat work, maybe some flyes from time to time, but mostly incline and decline work.

    This is what i was told. Unless you are doing some kind of olympic lifting dont touch your chest. Go only too parallel or a little bit lower. If you go way too low, then you put alot of stress on your rotator cuff.
    You also need to strengthen your RC and possible shoulders.

    when you bench your tris should only go down so it's parallel too the floor.

    Like Lcp2, I am a member of the F.U.S.C (fucked up shoulder club). I flat press like a sisssy to warm up and then on to incline db press. Incline flys, and some cable work. Stiff arm pull overs are out of the question. Glucosamine only goes so far after the rc get injured. my chest hasen't lost size because now I train smarter, not necessarly heavier. I decrease the time between sets and focus on using the pecks, as opposed to when I was young, dumb, and full of cum..just thinking about how cool it looks putting that bar up.

    Prolotherapy injections cured my RC injuries in both shoulders (mainly subcapularis tendon and anterior capsule).
    Because of those bench associated injuries, I rarely do any flat work these days, mostly LOW incline DB press and flyes, occ decline and hammer machine.
