Just a follow up, met with surgeon today and he kicked me out of PT for good. Only ended up doing a total of 4 PT sessions, said I probably only needed 2 since I'm recovering so well. Was originally scheduled for 6 weeks with 2 sessions a week. Meet with him again in 10 weeks and he will then give me the green light to start bicep work as long as I continue down this path. He said I can start tricep work already and just need to keep away form direct bicep and shoulder work, everything else is fair game. Lost 2 inches on my right arm so can finally start to put some size back on with tricep work and get rid of this jiggly arm!!

So Eric and Dave, you guys seem to be familiar with shoulder issues unfortunately. I tweaked something in my shoulder a week ago and while there has not been much pain since the initial first day or so, I still do not have full mobility of the arm. I definitely get sharp pain if I twist my wrist/arm in a circular motion or try to put it overhead. From what I've seen on-line quickly, it sounds like it could be a rotator cuff tear. Based on the amount of mobility i do have though it seems like it would be small and I am hopeful whatever it is heals up on it's own and I don't need to go to a doctor to diagnose it.

So my question is how did you work around your issues? I cannot see trying too lift anything over my head right now, but I still want to get some upper body exercise in. I am new to the gym and not familiar with many exercise routines, but I do have google so I can look them up if you throw out the name.

How did you tweak it?

But, what you describe sounds like either a rotator cuff or labral injury. Hopefully its just a strain/pull but you should rest it and probably take some anti inflammatory. If there is no improvement after a couple of weeks then its off to the Ortho for an evaluation.

Trust me you don't want a nagging shoulder injury, so give it some time to try to heal. If/when it heals begin to incorporate some direct movements in to strengthen the RC.

What were you doing when it happened and what’s causing limited mobility, pain or tightness? Definitely avoid anything overhead and as Dave states rest and anti inflammatories. Could also easily be a tendon strain/tearing on the upper bicep. It attaches at the glenoid so presents similar pains as a rotator or labrum. If you are going to continue to lift listen to your body, any pain or discomfort avoid that motion until you’re healed and again stay away from over head use. You tube athlean x he has some really good informative stuff on shoulders and exercises to work around pain and build up the supporting muscles to protect the shoulder. If you have a seated cable row machine that has a flat bench you can lie on your back and grab a straight bar attachement for the cable and do an upright row while lying down. Good for people with shoulder pain. Otherwise for me when I had pain I did a lot of delt raises, side, front and back. Do them slow and controlled, drop down on weight as they will be harder to do this way. Again avoid if any discomfort, do not work through any pain.

Luckily the pain has not been disabling or anything, actually very manageable, but then again, i'm a puss.

The pain presents itself in the front to the top of the shoulder. If you were to draw a line from your armpit up to the tip of your clavicle, that is where the pain is, when I stress it.

I was doing an overhead pulldown exercise on a machine, then some presses on another machine, and some dumbbell rows. When I was done I had to move one of those tractor tires out of the way so I squatted down and lifted it up and then pushed it against the wall. When I pushed it against the wall is when I first felt the pain and it was like a stabbing pain.

At that time, I thought, I should probably call it a day and go home. Instead, like a dumbass, I was not done with my workout, so I decided if it bothered me as I finish, i would just stop. So I proceeded to do 4 sets of kettle ball swings and 4 sets of medicine ball overhead throws. Suffice it to say, while I did not feel bad doing it, fifteen minutes afterward I was not so hot.

I kind of figured the answer is to do what you said Eric. I will talk to some of the trainers for some exercises to work around it, and will also take Dave's advice to keep it low key until it is properly healed. I'm heading to Daytona toward the end of October and if it is still bothering me when I get back, then I will get an appointment with the doc.

Sounds like a pull in the rotator cuff. Been there, done that. I stretch in the doorway, arm that hurts up straight and just inside the door jamb. Lean inward and try to reach up while doing it. If possible, try rotating your hand inward at the pinky finger.
