I've done a search and this has come up quite a lot. But my problem is a bit different to what I've found, because when I squat only my left rotator cuff hurts. It's like I've pulled something in my arm, "in" my shoulder. My right shoulder is perfectly fine. After I rack the bar, my left arm locks momentarily, I think because of the pain, then I can release the tension but it becomes stiff/painful and it hurts to move it around. A few minutes later the pain subsides a bit then I can do another squat. This leads me to taking up to 5 mins between sets, which is really annoying. Also I believe the pain is coming exclusively from the squat, because when I finish my squats and move onto other exercises, while the pain in my arm from the squats hinders me a bit, by the end of the workout the pain is entirely gone. And the next day my left shoulder is perfectly fine. Only when I squat do I get this pain.
Anyone know what it might be?
Thanks for any help.
