To make a long story short, I believe I've injured the rotator cuff inside my left shoulder.
A few months ago I changed my back workout routine where I start with Pull-ups. The only warm up I do are arm circles for a minute or two, then start my sets 10 x 3.
Well everything was going fine until I gradually started gaining a significant amount of weight. I'm up to 212 lbs now and in the last month every back day starts off with the inside of my shoulder hurting really bad when i perform pull-ups.
I think i hurt it by not warming up with pull downs prior to pulling 212 up for 10 reps.
I can do close grip, rows ect. but not pullups because pulling up is fine but comming back down will hurt in that area, even with 100 lbs.
It only hurts with pullups. Do you think my rotator cuff will heal if i just skip pullups and perform everything else on back day. I'd hate to stop working out over this.
Thank you for reading.
