    Working around a shoulder injury?

    So about 2 weeks ago I was doing chest, incline dumbbell presses and all of a sudden my left arm went dead. Ever since I've been having difficulty making it through my entire workout and am battling some pretty intense pain after my workout. The stabbing pain is mainly in my rear shoulder / shoulder blade area, but the pain resonates down into my bicep as well (more of a dull pain). I know that just about all weight lifting exercises use the shoulders and I dont really want to stop completely....any suggestions? I took off a week and then went back to my routine but just dropped down about 30% on the weight and increased reps a bit. Still having the pain....

    Tonight I took tylenol before working out, stretched in the sauna before lifting...made it through my whole workout, then hit the sauna again for some stretching, followed by the hot tub, then pool, hot tub, then pool...still had the pain, though not quite as intense as a week ago...

    Should I continue lifting, or should I stop for a while? I don't want to lose the progress i've made but I also dont want to do any further damage.

    Any way of getting the shoulder looked at by a pro? That would be my first priority, as you say, it affects most lifts.

    stop lifting..get it checked out...ur body is trying to tell you something when u are in pain...working through it is just gonna make it worse until u eventually really injure something and need to takes months off the gym...if anything just work legs and give your upper body a rest

    Vision is purpose, and when your purpose is clear so are your life choices. Vision creates faith and faith creates willpower. With faith there is no anxiety, no doubt - just absolute confidence.

    There are two undeniable truths in life: failure and success. Unfortunately, everyone experiences failures before achieving any amount of success. Life is ultimately a giant trial and error test-you never really get what you want without putting up with the things that you dont

    Stop lifting and get it checked out by the doctor. Have you tried putting ice on it?
