Hello, I recently posted a lengthy post seeking help for my long suffering shoulder. Ive been working out since 15, I didint start lifting serious weight until around 17-18. I wont go back over all the details, just the fact that I had minor tears in my shoulders in the past, recent MRI scans revealed the tears had healed. I took a few months off the gym, lost 80% of my gains and strenght. very hard to stomach... I thought doing this, along with theraband rotator cuff exercises would heal the problem. Shoulder felt good during this time. just a few days ago I decided to get back in the gym with some light work. Back day went down pretty well... then came chest day, after benching light weight my shoulder felt just as bad as ever. intense pain. Its always chest day that brings this on, so I decided to check a little on the web about benching form. Since I was 15 Ive always benched with my arms like 90 degrees to body, like a field goal post. I recently read something about how you should tuck elbows.. then I saw youtube videos of people with elbows kindof bent and I tried that movement with just my arms at home and it feels MORE COMFORTABLE! I got pretty depressed, the fact that I may have been doing this wrong and possibly slowly hurting myself for years.. Loosing most of my hard earned muscle in the months off. What do you guys think of this? Should I take more time off to heal from the damage done today and come back with proper form, or will it heal naturaly if I just start on chest day next week. Has this happend to any of you before? sorry for my grammer, typing quickly.
