Topic: Shoulder pains (Read 695 times)
Apr 22, 2012, 08:35 PM »
I am new to doing clean and jerk and my form is yet to be perfect.
When I try heavier lifts, about 80 kilo, and I get them or a fail, makes no matter, I often get pains in the shoulders after only a few lifts. The pains is literally in the shoulder joint that connects the arm to the shoulder bone. But I am not sure what is hurting - where the muscle connects? where the tendon connects? the cartilage? I dunno. But it is obviously a very bad pain because I have to stop afterwards. Right now, I can't train today because it still pains a bit from yesterday. It does not happen every time I do it, however, but tends to happen more when I fail the lift.
Maybe this is a common issue? My immediate thought is I'm probably lifting too much with my arms? Or perhaps the bar is not staying close enough to my body? Any advice if you've had this or not?
This particular pain, I've only ever had it from doing anything else once before - I remember once when I had to stretch out my arm to reach some water and fill a bucket. a really big bucket. I filled it with water and lifted it up arm extended. Then I got this same pain and it annoyed me for a few days. Dunno if that helps.

First, is important a medical evaluation, if this shows no problem,
Look at unstabilities or disymetries in your technique (if you post a video, it helps). If the problem is not here,
you must pay atention to structure of shoulder: as you are new, vascularization, strength and flexibility are not well developed. Important a good local warm up (example: 15 - 20 press with only the bar) previous to the jerk training. And some "musculation training" oriented to the shoulders. In my experience, classical press or impulse press is very good.

Could be many things. Most likely is poor flexibility in the rack position, or the bar is in the wrong position when you catch it.
