Hey hey every time I do shoulder workouts I usually geta a cracking sensation and a pain to follow...usually dont happem with Military Presses but with dumbell front raises it happens to hurt alot... Is this due to a weak rotator cuff or what? Should I be seeing a physician(sp)??? any info would be greatly appreciated cause I think this is gonna be a speedbump for progression when I move onto heavier weights and just get worse
i kind of have the same question...somewhat similar
from what i've read, in older people it tends to be rotator cuff or shoulder tears, while in younger people its unstable shoulders...i could be wrong....i dont know a whole lot bout it, but i would like to know myself
i'm not sure....it could be almost 2 years, definitately over a year....sometimes when i do incline press or military press or any of that type...i sometimes get a popping, sumtimes painful sumtimes not....but no matter what, i can always move my arms up around at any time, up and down, in different directions and get a pop....sumtimes it hurts, sumtimes it dont...so i'm not sure..
i quit military press for that reason, and moved to dumbbell shoulder press (which seems to work better for me)...i just hope someone can tell me the right direction i should head to..i don't think its worth seeing a physician, wit the fact i've had it lasting so long, and it doesn't seem to get worse or better...or even hurt real bad...just sometimes a sting or something but thas it
Anyone else got any insight I sure dont like this pain in my shoulders? should I be doing some rotator cuff exercises or what? Cause i know for a fact this is far from normal and that I need to do something about it. Or should I just take my own advice and go to a specialist anyways???
Sounds similar to how the problem i`ve got at the minute started, at the minute my shoulders are very weak in the contracted position eg.washing windows, holding things up in the air, etc..and just cannot hold my bodyweight eg. pushing myself up from a lying position, resting on one arm etc..it all started with a clicking noise during presses as if a ligament was twanging over the bone or something, I just ignored it and it got worse, very painful when benching or any other kind of press, felt as if the front delt was overstretched and about to rip off the bone. One time I was doing front raises and was getting bad pains in my rear delts as I was doing them ? What happened after that was I went off the rails and pigged out and havent trained for months as they`re still the same.
I`d definately get it checked if I was you before it leads to something more serious.

i got the same thing during shoulder workout... dont know what it is...
i've just started to try icin it down everyday n hopefully that will go good after a while, and i'm gonna add rotator cuff excercises to my work out soon...maybe that will cause the poppin n pain to go away, if not i should go see doc
if you experience constant pain you should always get it examined. and you should always be doing rotator cuff exercises/warm ups before shoulder workouts. we always assume its rotator cuff, but if it really were the problem, you wouldnt be able to do those exercises, its probably something else.
i was getting 'clicks' in my left shoulder when i was doing bench and other shoulder exercises. The click wasn't painful, but in recent weeks i did start feeling pain.
What I did: I lowered the weight and worked with higher reps for the next workout and ended chest day with RC exercises, then I took the next whole week off training, and did only 1 workout, which was specifically for the rotator cuffs. Today I ramped the weight back up again and I seem to be fine. I'm being a lot more careful with my form on bench, making sure I keep my elbows in, more like a PL.
Hope that helps.
