Shoulder injury

Hey, last night I did some benching.

I do 5x5 routine. 80 kg first set, then 100, then 110 (my max), and then afterwards whatever I manage on 100kg. I'm fairly small, 5'11, 74 kg.

Now last night on the 110kg bench I felt some small niggle in my right shoulder (sort of the top of the shoulder, to the front), the second set was not cool, so I stopped.

Today it's painful when I lift my arm. Not very, just some pain, and discomfort.

What should I do? How long should I wait to start trianing again? And should I keep it below 90kg for a couple of weeks?

thanks

    Prob. just a alittle tendonitis. Rest the shoulder a little. Don't lift for a few days and you should be fine.

    Tendonitis would actually ease with exercise and pain would be greater the day after, then training on it would cause the pain to decrease, until the day after again, when the pain would be even worse. I would say it's more likely to be a slight muscle tear, first thing to do would be to control inflammation for the next 3 days. Shoulder is already elevated, so need to worry about that, compression is difficult, ice every hour or so for 10 minutes at a time would be useful. I personally wouldn't train on it at all for a week or so, just keep it stretched. Oh, and it's likely to be the insertion of the pec major into the humerus that you have injured by the sounds of it.

    it's quite far on the outside of the shoulder in front.

    Wish I had a pic then I could show you.

    If you move your finger from the front of your bicep straight up until about 4 cm from the top of the shoulder in front, there's a muscle I can feel that's tender.

    A week off at least then, I have a feeling more actually, this is quite crap, but I have to train legs anyway, so not end of the world.
