Shoulder Pain

Shoulder Pain...Again!

So this shoulder pain of mine has affected my bench press. I was able to do 2 reps with 295lbs a couple of weeks ago, but this week I couldn't even get a single rep. Not good.

My solution to deal this this shoulder problem:

  1. Thorough shoulder warm up before training
  2. Ibuprofen before training
  3. Face pulls twice a week for my rotator cuff
  4. I'm also tinkering with the idea of substituting dips and/or incline dumbbell bench press instead of barbell bench press during recovery days.

We'll see how it goes...
