shoulder pain during jerks?
I have been training the olifts for about 6 weeks now.
When I press I have no pain in my shoulders at all.
When I jerk I get what feels like tightness and pulling pain in the top part of my delts.
My coach and I can't really figure out why.
any ideas?

thanks alot,

I second this. Happens to me during jerks also (but more often than not with power jerks)

Summary (of my posts):
Usually overdeveloped anterior shoulder and RC. Strengthen posterior shoulder, scap retraction and external rotators...

Avoid pain, ice after any use. Massage, tennis ball, anti-inflammatories, etc.

I'd like to see your overhead position and video of the jerk.

There's a few things that I've done before with our folks to improve their jerks: one arm heavy overhead walks, handstand push-ups, adjusting grip width on the jerk itself etc.
