    Question Chest Exercises Hurt Right Shoulder?

    Whenever I do any form of push exercise that focuses on my chest muscle I feel a sharp pain in my right shoulder as if its coming out of the socket. It actually feels like its my shoulder doing the exercise more than my chest.

    Now, my shoulders tend to roll forward a little due to some poor posture/weak rhomboids, so as of late I've been working out my back muscles by focusing more so on strengthening my upper/mid back/rhomboids as well as attempting to walk/sit with a straight posture so that they can pull my shoulders back and prevent them from rolling forward. Do you guys think that is the reason I get this pain while I work out my chest? Also do you think this is the reason why I haven't been able to gain size in my chest area?

    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    im not a doctor but i think you have it right, just keep trying to build up your back muscles because they're probably underdeveloped. also it could be rotator cuff problems

    You've probably got long arms and you're bringing the bar down too long when doing a B-Press, good idea is to put a folded towel on your chest and use it as a guide for how low you need to go so you don't injure yourself

    I'll incorporate more parallel grip workouts and will continue to add emphasis on back to help with the protruding shoulders. I think once I get that out of the way I will be able to go after adding mass to chest.
    Just started working out again. Lots of things went array last time and so everything will be better now.

    Goal 1. Fix Protruding shoulders
    Goal 2. Get rid of stomach bulge
    Goal 3. Add Mass

    I think you answered your own question for the most part OP. What I would also suggest (if you are not doing this already) is to never let your elbows flare out. Keep them a bit closer to the body, and imagine you are pushing yourself downwards "through the bench" rather than pushing the bar up.

    Thanks for the help! I'll post back after my next chest work-out.

    Ps. I bookmarked your blog, it will be helpful in my quest to make gains.

    Thanks again.

    Rest it. Read up on shoulder impingement. Acromial tendon probably. Use band pullaparts frequently and I'm betting you don't do standing overhead presses.
    On top of my game, and it don't stop til my hip don't hop anymore.

    Had a very similar problem. Was because my back muscles were underdeveloped compared to rest of my body. Work on your back and see if it helps.

    Hmm maybe, I need to go in for a physical so I'll get my doctor to look into it. I do overhead pressed but seated never really standing, I don't see how they differ very much so but I can incorporate those into my shoulder workouts. I'll check out band pullaparts thanks.

    I've noticed some strength increase in my back already (started doing pull-ups - which I used to hate) So i'll keep at it slowly. I've also added Scapular Wall-Slide and the Broom stretch to help with shoulder/rotator cuff. Hopefully the doctor will rule out any tendinitis in my shoulder and impingement and then with all those exercises/stretches combined the pain will recede and eventually go away.
    Just started working out again. Lots of things went array last time and so everything will be better now.

    Don't go down to the point where your arms and elbows are more than ~90 degrees. Doing so will prevent shoulder pains and potential tearing/injuries.

    I had this happen to me in Nov 2009, and tried to push through it until around February when I finally convinced the VA to give me a MRI on the thing to see what was going on. Turned out I partially tore the inner labrum of my RC. I was still able to do things, just not at the weight I was accustomed to doing. I ended up moving from the bar to the free weights based entirely on this notion. I would strongly suggest getting it looked at to see if there is an actual shoulder injury there. Don't do what I did.

    Yea, I'll go to a doctor doesn't hurt especially since Good Ol Canada covers Health Care for the most part.
