Default Bench press?

Hi everyone,

I rarely do bench press. But for the past week I have given it a try again. Each time during my workout I noticed my shoulder starts making crackling sound. Then after a couple days, my shoulder would hurt if I lift it over my head. Is there something I should consider while bench pressing? Or what is the right way of doing it.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Prolly so. He's put a lot of thought into bench press form.

On that note, Body122506, it could definitely be mostly a form issue. But be careful and don't force it. You could also be working up an impingement or something.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I have to agree with Talo and Eric. Please take it easy and be careful. The last thing you want to do is get seriously hurt cause it can take a long time to recover. Take a hard look at your form and the weight you are doing and make adjustments if necessary. Good luck.

^^^^Yeah, pushups can be very good for the shoulders in some ways. It especially helps with keeping scapular movers healthy in particular the serratus anterior.

Another thing people can do is of course switch to dumbells when the shoudlers are acting up. Some of the problem can be the straight bar and being forced into a non-neutral grip.

You can also switch up to board presses as the change to a lesser ROM can really give the shoulders a break. It all depends on the person, of course. I've personally found floor presses, however, to bother my shoulders.

Lots of other things you can do.

Some people swear by chaning the angle. I think it's good in general but I don't think it will save your shoulders if they are giving you problems.

from personal experience, if i shift to an incline angle i feel it a lot more on my delts whereas doing it decline kinda hits it the most...

Cool thanks for the help everyone, after reading the link by Eric3237, I will try to improve my form. If that still does not work, I think I will try to stick more with push ups.

Thanks everyone. Very friendly forum here.
