These past 4 weeks I am just started getting into Olympic lifting. I found a coach in my area and have been working on it 4-6 days a week.
I can attest to how much my left shoulder has hurt during that time. I've never had any problems, but find myself using icy hot after nearly every session. The only thing keeping me going is my coach telling me it's normal and will go away.
I have been doing shoulder stretches (door frame, dislocates, etc.) and extra shoulder strength work every night and it has gotten somewhat better.
I'm glad to hear it's not just me.
Eventually, I sickened of people, myself included, who donít think enough of themselves to make something of themselves - people who did only what they had to do and never what they could have done. I learned from them the infected loneliness that comes at the end of every misspent day. I knew I could do better.
