    Pain in my arm while benching

    i have this pain that runs down the side of my arm
    its more under my delt close by the armpit
    everytime i do any pressing movements for the chest
    this is the second time this has occured and today my workout suffered
    only could of done half what i usually do
    its not a sharpe pain more like a wirery type pain if anyone understands that, i just wanna get back on track and start lifting heavy again but this is a obstacle for me, has anyone experienced anything similiar to what i have experienced
    your help is greatly appreciated brothas

    i experience an odd pain in one shoulder when benching. It helps a bit if I do one or two heavy shoulder exercises first, but still not foolproof. Because of this, I've decided that flat bench is too risky for me because the shoulder goes out at any time; I've switched to heavy dumbells because of it.

    First and foremost, check your form .... it could be the smallest thing that has just been compounding and now has turned into this pain ....

    second, try a smith machine for doing your bench

    thirdly .. have someone check your shoulder, you could have a slight tear, or stretched something ... if this is the case, continually excercising it is only hurting it more

    just did my shoulder routine today and its over
    it was grueling once it started hurting i switched up to light weights
    and finished my routine, couldnt complete a regular workout
    during my workouts its mostly prymiding the weight up
    i noticed if i warmed up with very light weights for my 6rep max i could perform the move with slightly lessened pain, but when i mean warmed up it was prolly ten or or more mintues just for one exercise which was the military press.
    by then i was almost fatigued
    am i onto something with warming up for a long duration
    this pain has never occured before just hit me 3weeks ago

    and if it was a tear what can i do about it??

    I'd go have a doctor check it out...
    Once your shoulder fucks up, shoulders incorporate in basically every upper body lift...

    yes, I'd get it checked to be on the safe side ...

    and your warm-up "theory" .... well think about it, you need to warm up according to what you are going to be doing ....

    If you're going to be doing 3 x 4 at 85-90% for your working sets, then doing a couple of warm-up sets of 10-12 at 50-60% won't be very useful ...

    you could just be over-exherting the joint/tendons/ligaments by not warming up properly
