    HCT-12 for the slightly injured

    So I've started on this program, but feel like I can't give it my all due to pain in my left shoulder. Feels like I have a shoulder impingement problem since I only feel pain during certain exercises. Bench pressing light weights is fine, but once I go heavy, my left shoulder starts hurting.

    My questions are:

    -Do you think it's wise to continue this program without going too heavy on my bench?
    -Or refrain from working out for 2 months to heal my shoulder? Although the pain doesn't bother me at all other than bench pressing or military press. So it's not unbearable.
    -Would cable flies be an appropriate substitution for bench pressing? That's the only chest exercise that doesn't cause any pain. Tried everything else.

    Thanks for the response!

    I wouldn't think that cable flies would NOT be an appropriate substitute for the chest exercise. That would be similar to doing leg extensions for legs, and he said those are not appropriate.. I would try some different types of machines, or incline presses, or bar dips, or dumbbell presses at different angles and see if there is anything you can do without pain. If not, there may be some issues that may need to be looked at by a professional.
