Not having done any kind of exersice for almost 10 years, I ended up with a light tendinitis in both shoulders after 2 months of crossfit. I became aware of a light, but growing, problem in my shoulders the last few weeks, but really topped it of by lifting 160 reps of 44lbs P2OH.
Now I’ve had a week of from the gym and my shoulders have gotten much better – no more pain from just sitting on the sofa. I can do garden work and logging that doesnt exceed shoulder height, but yesterday I worked for 5-10 min with a crowbar over my head, and now my right shoulder (I’m right handed) is back where it was.
Not knowing much about it, I also suspect shoulder impingement.(?) Both shoulders are pulled a bit toward my front, and stretching my arms straight overhead is impossible – just end up looking like the Y in YMCA. I’ve never been the most flexible guy, but after a “wannabe BB period” with steroids and rapid growth 10 years ago, my whole body tightened up and I’ve now got the flexibility of a senior citizen.
What can I do to solve my problem?
Where exactly is the pain in your shoulders?
