    Nagging shoulder pain

    With my current routine, my shoulder never seems to quite recover fully. Workouts often end with some kind of mild pain or discomfort in at least one of my shoulders. And this is all without any over head pressing or shoulder isolation, just standard compounds such as different angle benching, rows, pull downs, and a few isolation exercises thrown in such as curls/push downs etc. My over all volume is about the same as used in WBB1.

    Given that my shoulders seems to be pushed to the brink of injury with my current routine, is it possible that I don't need to be doing any shoulder isolation? If that's not the case, does anybody have any ideas as how to change my training to better focus on my shoulders without risking injury? I'm at the point where I am sometimes even being forced to reduce intensity/volume on push/pull movements, let alone doing military presses.

    It's no bull****.
    I'm out of it currently and am paying the price. Read my journal a few posts back if you want my take on it.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    This article might help you, it has a decent section on shoulder flexibility and preventing injuries.

    Do some research on Shoulder Impingement Syndrome then get with a good Physical Therapist who specializes in shoulders.

    Shoulders are second only to the the back as far as areas of the body that you do not want to mess with.
