Press Protection

Press Protection

 

An aching shoulder often means impingement. This is usually aggravated with overhead pressing, but pressing on an angle can take tension off the joints. Wedge a bar into a corner and press one end of it on a 45-degree angle (like you are throwing a lever) – this is called a landmine press. You should also prioritize pulling into your back workouts and do more rear delt work, as that will help correct the muscle imbalance that set up the injury.

 

Sample Workout:

  • Overhead Dumbbell Press – 3 sets of 10 reps
  • Front Raise – 3 sets of 12 reps
  • Lateral Raise – 3 sets of 12 reps
  • Rear Lateral Raise – 3 sets of 12 repsDeltoideus
