Re: What muscle injury is this?

It's either overuse or what I would suspect is that you have shoulder instability.

Basically because you have no horizontal pulling and all of the exercises you do are internally rotating (pretty much all pushing.. and pullups develop chest and lats which are internal rotators). So your external rotators don't get worked much except in deadlifts.

Stretch them out, and do some rotator cuff exercises for teres minor and infraspinatus... possibly supraspinatus and see if that helps.
