Re: Avoiding shoulder injuries, and fixing them - What's the best course of action?

I have the same pain in the same place on my right shoulder as well... It mainly comes during presses, OHS, and HSPU, but sometimes with back squats when the weight gets heavy, or Ive done the other exercises before. With the presses it comes usually on my 3rd or 4th set of 5X5. I also have pain in the elbows (tendonitis from pull-ups being a pretty big guy) as well. Both these (althought my elbows not so much anymore) have really hampered my gains in both these exercises. Used to be able to do a few HSPU anyways, and now I can't, and cant do more than 145lbs on strict presses in my total or ME.
