Whether i'm lifting or stretching or pulling my right arm, my anterior shoulder joint( deltoid anterior) hurts a lot. I noticed it 3 weeks ago but didn't bother me as much 'til I started lateral raise dumbbell. What can I do? Maybe my lifting posture are not correct. I read somewhere that this joint is called rotary cuff??(maybe spelled wrong). It is the joint between the deltoid anterior and pectoralis major. It also hurts when I am doing incline bench press actually this worsen the pain that I had to stop.
Another unrelated question is about rotary torso machine. Does this works the obliques? People in my gym rushes to this machine but I prefer incline twisting sit-ups.
thanks a million

i got the same problem. mine's been around for almost 3 years now..got worse when i started lifting particularly, yes, lateral raises. right now the pain is definitely manageable (but still present) since i stopped for a bit.
concerning inclines..i switched to dumbells since this seems to allow more freedom of motion. u can try that. if u feel too much pain, u better stop for a bit...unfortunately, at one time i didnt do that and it started to affect my other push exercises as well.
start light with the lat raises --a comfortable weight. i've noticed much less pain when slowly lowering the weight...anyway, u might wanna try that. just my $0.02
my delts were aching a couple of months back also. i just stopped doing any direct delt excercises for two weeks. now it is all better. i was told that it happens to alot of people who first start out because the joint isnt used to the increased amount of stress put upon it.
