Left shoulder pain when doing OHP

Fuck this lift.

Top middle of my shoulder has a pain in it when I do OHP. Tried to explain to my doc, but it wasn't hurting at the time, so couldn't really describe it. Feeling it right now though.

    How long have you been lifting?

      I lifted for about 7 months about 2 years ago, developed the issue, stopped lifting. Then got back into it again a week ago and now the issue is back.

      It's only when the shoulder is under load and feels like it's closer to the trap.

        Stop doing OHP, try other shit until you find something that doesn't hurt you shoulder.

          read about shoulder impingement. do some band stretches before your push days. watch an OHP Rippetoe video. do NOT retract your scapula while you OHP. your shoulders should be free to move with your traps. you should be shrugging a little while you press.

            Shut up newfag.
            Only an inexperienced lifter would be stupid enough to persist with a lift that is causing pain.

              It ceases causing pain when you correct the form, dumbfuck

                Or you destroy your rotator cuff trying.

                Yes, why even try a few reps at a low weight, I'm sure he can never ever OHP so what's the point of trying to figure out if it was a firm issue. Beginners should also switch to machines at the first instance of pain, not risk it by learning the movement correctly

                Imagine believing you are this fragile.

        OHP always gives me shoulder pain (tendonitis?) so I stopped doing it, I replaced it with dumbell press and the pain went away.

    Google a picture of a skellington and draw an arrow on it showing where you feel like the pain is. Then upload it and post it so we can see. Odds are you need surgery.

    Why can't you fuckers ever post a video of yourself doing the lift? It would help TREMENDOUSLY in diagnosing where the problem lies. Can't your ego handle your form being scrutinized?

      If we can't see a video it's all speculation.

    You are impinging you rotator cuff on every rep most likely. Stop doing weighted over head movements. Try just horizontal movements + front/side/rear delt raises.
    If it’s your bony confirmation that is the cause even pulling vertically might start being problematic eventually, but that’s ok since rowing is enough for back honestly.

    Most people grip bar too wide when doing ohp. Hand should at arms width or slightly more than that. I see way to many people who grab the bar like they doing cheat bench press.

    Reduce volume>reduce load>perform movement pattern with lighter dumbbells>perform movement pattern with resistance bands>perform movement pattern without load.

    Work your way through the above until you find you can do the movement pattern (vertical push) without pain, then gradually work your way back again.

    Performing no movement whatsoever when something is in pain is a very good way to nocebo yourself out of recovering.
