STOP THE PRESSES! No…this is not a breaking media announcement, but actually what many people recommend you do when you have shoulder pain (especially during overhead pressing) when you lift.
But SHOULD you? The knee jerk reaction to pain of any kind during lifting is to STOP lifting. HOWEVER…I think that could potentially be the absolute WORST thing you could be doing.Look, if you’re like most guys, the last time you felt 100% working out was the very first time you picked up a weight!! Whether caused by your job, the sport you play, years of not taking care of your body so much, or just normal aging…it’s normal to have some aches and cobwebs that have to be worked out when lifting.
BUT…It’s knowing WHEN to “PRESS ON” and HOW to do it that makes all the difference in what you’re ultimately going to get out of that workout…and every other day’s workout for that matter!
Let me show you my best techniques for getting the most out of EVERY exercise you SHOULD be doing!
