I hurt my shoulder blades today while doing my 5x5 workout. The good news is that I no longer felt any pain on my wrist or elbow. The bad news is that my left shoulder blade started hurting. I still kept squatting and got 5 reps for 4 sets. On the final set, the first rep felt like the bar might bull out my left shoulder blade from my back. I had the strength to brute-force it but couldn't tolerate the shoulder blade pain, so I stopped squatting.
I then warmed up for my 5x5 bench. I could tell that the shoulder blade injury was interfering with my pressing. When I reached my work weight, I noticed something a bit strange while unracking the bar. It took about 2 extra second for the bar to come off of the rack on the left side. I managed to get 5 reps but I stopped there. I got a bit scared as I don't want to aggravate the injury by putting more stress on my left shoulder blade region.
Anyone know what went wrong? Ever happened to you? Here is a pic of the region affected:
That whore region feels tight and in pain. The region I circle is where I was feeling like my shoulder blade might snap off as I was squatting.
