    Shoulder Pain When Overhead Pressing

    Lately my shoulders have been killing me. They just feel very stiff and sore all the time. When I do overhead presses, they feel stiff and it hurts on the bottom of the movement.

    Is this what a rotator cuff problem feels like? If so, I will follow the advice on Dorian's article on rotator cuffs at http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/dorian.htm

    Also, do you guys feel that Bent Over Side Laterals are a good idea?

    Thanks!!

    Smile

    Bent over side laterals, the ones for the rear delts, they are fine but personally I prefer to work the rear delts using 2 cables and standing upright, a sort of reverse motion of cable flyes.

    Maybe your shoulders just need a rest, when was the last itme you had a week off? You could be overtraining them in terms of all pressing movements. If they are suffering some wear and tear I highly recommend glucosamine/chondroitin

    Yup could be rotator cuff .
    Does your shoulder crackle when you do a windmill with your arm.
    Put your arm behind your back and get some to push your hand up does it hurt a little in your shoulder?
    IF so you might have a rotator cuff injury or rsi maybe from putting all your weight on one arm while sitting at a desk.

    more than likely that is exactly what the problem is. I would do the routine on the days you work the arms. But do it before you do anything else. In other words warm up stretch and then do the cuff. once done then do the arm routine. Agfter a few weeks you should notice a big difference. But a word to the wise, use a light weight to start with. Even if it 5-10 lbs.

    Dorian,
    In your article you said do each exercise to fatigue, but how many sets do you recommend. Is this the type of thing where you only do 1 set or is it like normal exercises where you do several?

    do it as a part of your normal rotuine. I would do at least 1-2 sets of each. when I say fatigue I mean somewhere in the lines of 10-12.Use a light enough weight at first so as to not blow out your joints. I use 10-20 pounds only for this.When you get stronger then up the weight.
