    upper arm / shoulder pain

    I've been weight training for a couple of months now, lifting quite heavy (for me). I've developed a pain in my right upper arm - on the outside of the arm, sort of in the gap where the shoulder meets the tricep (not at the back). I can't trace back to a particular point when it happened bu it seems to hurt if I attempt a shoulder press. It also causes pain when i try certain stretching exercises (such as stretching tricep by lifting arm above head, bending at the elbow and pushing arm down behind head/back). It generally hurts when I move my arm about in certain positions. I occasionally get a dull ache in the spot too, outside of training. The pain seems quite centered on a small point right where my shoulder seems to end and my arm starts. Any ideas what it could be, or advice on recovery?

    Many thanks

    Search (here or on google) for "shoulder impingement syndrome" and "bicipital tendinitis".
    Then go to and read all of his articles about shoulders and posture.
