I need some advice.. ive been lifting consistantly for a year and a half and ive run into the first injury that hastn gone away after a weeks rest. My left shoulder seems to be injured. Everytime i do overhead dumbell presses, it hurts and i can hear a popping sound. I dont think its dislocated, because the only time it hurts is when im working my shoulders. I was wondering if anyone was in a similar situation.. or knows what it could be.
Also.. i read on John Berardis site (sp) that i should take a week off after every 4-6 weeks of lifting. Does one benefit from increased strength/ better body composition from doing this? I have been lifting for 8 weeks straight (3 days aweek) . What are the common symptons? Any help would be appreciated.
