Well this exercise fucked my left shoulder good and proper.

Well this exercise fucked my left shoulder good and proper. Not sure what went wrong but I had pain in my shoulder every time I did this exercise, ignored it for a few weeks and completely failed on my first rep the other day because of the pain.
Can only do Arnold DB presses for shoulders now.

Gonna miss this exercise:(

    Edit: Thanks for the gold kind stranger

    Edit 2: 327 upvotes for this? Haha wow that's the most I've ever gotten, thanks guys and gals and everything in between!

    Edit 3: WTF 600 upvotes wow thank you all so much this is the best birthday ever

    Edit 4: Thanks for all the birthday wishes fellow r/wooooshers. I tippeth mine hat to thee on this pleasant morrow.

    Edit 5: Ok, so this went viral overnight for some reason O_o 2000 motherflipping upboats I really have no words thank you all so much it means a lot!

    Edit 6: ok I'm noticing some toxic discussion happening in this reply chain and I feel the need to address it. Sexism and racism are not cool guys, so please cool it and continue the good vibes please and thank you!

    Edit 7: ok so I don't know why but I've received a lot of downvotes on this post recently, maybe i got raided by IST.com/b?? (commonly referred to as the "asshole of the internet" for those who aren't aware). I don't really ask for much but I was hoping we could show those losers a thing or two, so please give this post an upvote if you haven't already, it would mean the world to me and show these bullies you cannot mess with a good person.

    Edit 8: turns out my girlfriend cheated on me, so that happened :/

    Edit 9: so people have been wanting me to clarify the previous edit. I don't have the energy to go into a lot of detail so the general gist of it is this: Yes we were in an open relationship, no that doesn't mean you can't cheat on someone when you're in an open relationship. If you are having sex regularly with someone and never mention it until they get you pregnant, that is definitely a betrayal of trust even if you've both agreed that she can have as many partners as she feels she needs to be comfortable.

    Edit 10: FYI, taking responsibility for the child does not make me any less of a man than you, actually it makes me more, so kindly fuck off please and thank you!

        Nerves generally follow the path of arteries, if you can feel a pulse, you are likely near a nerve as well.

        If significant impingement is present and bloodflow is significantly restricted for a period of time, a blood clot can form.

    You are a dumbfuck and need to revoke your gym membership and only practice dive bombers + push ups to recover your shoulder from this self-caused injury. Maybe make some solid gains and lose a few pounds in the progress.

      DB OHP will put your shoulders into a compromised position, allowing for impingement to happen.

      Full range of motion for any ball and socket joint is extremely dangerous unless you've had extensive X rays and examinations done on both your hips and your shoulders, and you shouldn't do full ROM exercise, which includes full ROM squats, until you get your bones and joints checked out for impingements and labral tears.

      Failure to adhere to this will result in severe pain and instability in the joint, athritis, or a very risky surgery that puts your brachial plexus in regards to your shoulder and your femoral nerve / sciatic nerve in regards to your hip, at risk of injury. Recovery is about 3 months for shoulder, 6-8 months for hip, all because you pushed ROM.

      The exercises aren't really to blame, it's the people that advocate for them that are, people that do not have the medical knowledge to know just how bad things can go if there's an undiagnosed underlying issue

        Right, that's why ATG squats are sooooo dangerous.

          I had surgery june 30th for a labral tear caused by a massive cam impingment on my femoral head as a result of doing full ROM hip movements. You are retarded

            Yes, many such cases from ATG squats. Thanks for the enormous sample size which is statistically significant

              FAI is present in about 10-15% of the adult population.

              The incidence rate of shoulder complaints is up to 34% with up to 65% of cases being some kind of shoulder impingement

              You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Go read a book.

    Try lifting with your lower back in twisting, jerky motions more. That spontaneous moment will strengthen muscle fibers you never knew you had.

    OHP is 100% unnecessary for anyone to be doing. All it does is add lots of wear and tear to shoulders and will possibly lead to injury. Lesson learned OP

      Lifting things over your head naturally is unnecessary. Ever lift something to someone above you like multiple a rolls of felt paper? No, you haven't.

    The only reason people do standing barbell OHP is because they like watching themselves in the mirror when they do it. Expensive price to pay for narcissistic gayry.

    I messed up my shoulders when i was a lad and that kept me out of the gym for a decade. Always be extremely careful with shoulders. The joints may as well be made of glass. You can get huge shoulders without doing retarded things like OP did.
