A Hidden Cause of Bench Press Shoulder Injuries

A hidden cause of bench press shoulder injuries is actually a weakness of the long head of the biceps.

The long head of the biceps is stressed more when the elbow joint is behind the upper body as they are when doing incline curls.

If you have strengthened your rotator cuff and external rotators, and have addressed muscle adhesions etc, but still experience some pain in the bench press, then you should check your numbers on incline curls and see if your weights match the norms for your bench.

I hope this quick tip helps.

If you want your programs designed to address your individual needs feel free to reach out.

If you need some work on addressing muscle adhesions feel free to book in for a performance session.
