Shoulder Niggle

Current Mantra: Be the hero of your own movie. —Joe Rogan

Jottings: Houston we have a problem. My left shoulder, posterior deltoid, hasn’t been working right for a while now. I experience pain when I do movements with the bar behind my head. This is interesting because I can do front shoulder work with the bar front shoulder press & jerks without discomfort. But I have some trouble with dips. Bottom line its probably time to start thinking about healing.

Training/Practice:Front squats 4×3 alternating with behind the neck push press also 4×3. Squat 95, 185, 225×2 (to heavy) back off 205, 205. Press 95,95,135,155. Because it was a push press I was able to get the weight through the pain point but dropping it on the way down was a problem.
