What causes the discomfort? Going overhead? Horizontal pressing? All of it?
What other activity do you do that may cause more stress to the left arm that may result in the imbalance? I'm guessing that the imbalance is nothing, but the shoulder pinching could be an impingement or a symptom of something potentially mroe serious.
...yea I know I'm in denial...b/c I'm addicted to training. No lie. That is why I haven't been to medical.
A few months back I was playing around w/ my wife and I picked her up and held her in a sorta "front carry" position....and the next day my shoulder was acting up.
That was like 3 months ago.
I noticed the pain when I grabbed onto something...like when I would do 1 arm KB swings w/ my right arm ...my shoulder would get this "pinching" sensation.
