Working through discomfort...

Wondering what everyone's take on working through a discomfort. Having some discomfort on my collarbone. Inside of shoulder joint, top of bone. Only when doing chest days. Not enough to render my weight...or maybe it is but I have continued with gains. Any ideas? Should I give chest a rest for a month and see if it subsides?

Thanks!

Rest, then see how it goes.

I am currently nursing my back and a forearm issue, neither seem to be getting worse, each pain has it's good days and bad days, so I have just been working through them.

This sounds similar to what I went through before my injury really surfaced. It was a noticeable iffy feeling, some discomfort if you will right where my shoulder meets the chest area. Definitely did not impair me enough to take my weights down number / reps wise. Well, I ignored that pain and lifted through it because it never seemed to get worse. One day I decided to try hang cleans for the first time. Got cocky and tried 135lb and pressing above my head. That day, 3 reps of that later and I couldn't lift for 2 months. My shoulder gave way, and dove head first into severe tendinitis that didn't recover for about 3 more months afterwards.


What I would recommend for you, ICE that shoulder after every workout, and warm up rotator cuffs before your primary lifts. I would take 2.5lb plates and wave them around, do rotations and other movements you can find online to stretch out / warm up those rotator cuffs. Try this for a week and see how it feels. Just don't want you to get hurt my man.

Working through discomfort...

I've worked through a discomfort before but not a pain. Given what could go wrong with a shoulder, I would take ibuprofen and ice it, take a week off and reevaluate.

For sure. Will look into such stretches. This is located "above" or "on top" of my collar bone. I'd say three fingers length towards my chest. I'll get a picture pointing to the area.

Exactly, if it isn't something new I always have my knees to rely on to give me issues. The cracking noises that they produce are scary.

I didn't think I was gonna make it through MEPs for the military because my knees sound so crunchy and busted when I squat.

Is this a serious question? What other words do you want? None English ones? not sure how else to describe it.

It's not tender on a joint. Not even shire which muscle actually connects at the location. Maybe it's a tendon.

I'm thinking a good synonym would be: Impair.


Not enough discomfort to "impair" my weight (like he can still bench 4 plates for 12 reps even though he has the discomfort)

My Ride: nothing
my left knee makes the weirdest crackling sound when I squat. Absolutely no pain but it's definitely not a normal sound. It's not the crackling sound of a joint. It's like cartilage or something grinding on something. If it hurt I'd worry about it but as of now it's nothing.

My knees crack simply from walking, they have been messed up since I was a kid (11-12 years old), no pain now but I have had issues in the past and I hope I don't have issues with them later in life.
