    Rotator Cuff Issues, Incline Dumbell press

    A couple years ago i had my should pop out and make some nasty noises while doing incline dumbell press. I was put on a high strength anti-inflamtory and didnt do chest / shoulder excersises for several months. I finally got the shoulder back to full strength and starting hitting the gym hard. Last friday I was at the gym and it Happened again! What the heck am I doing wrong? Its still killing me and I have an appointment with the orthapedist next tuesday. I figure the doctor wont know exactly what it is or what to do but I'm hoping some one on this forum does!
    Thanks for your help in advance

    How well do you warm up and stretch? I suggest hitting the bike for 3-5 minutes, then performing shoulder stretches for a few minutes before you begin. Then, start off with 2 light warm up set to get the blood flowing, and to prepare your body for the excersize you are about to do. Find some shoulder excersizes on the internet.

    Here's a post I made recently. It's still not finished, but it might help you articulate where your pain is and what triggers it. http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=76326

    Here's another link that might be helpful: http://www.stoneclinic.com/rotator_cuff.htm

    Definately DON'T do anything except ice and rest until you see a medical professional.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
