    Default Droopy shoulder

    Right, whilst training biceps today, straight BB curls I noticed that my right shoulder looks lower than my left!!! I have always noticed when doing pressing movements my right shoulder sometimes gets a stabbing pain if I go below a certain point. Is there anything I can do to correct this or do I need outside assistance?? Thanks in advance guys!!!

    My left shoulder drops and the complex around it bunches up when I'm working it. On stage if I don't pick it up it's noticeable. I've been doing some biomechanics on it, and hoping it'll eventually free up.

    evryone ive met has a wonky shoulder, mine droops forward and is lower..

    check out your hands when you press.

    your wonky shoulders hand will be bent further back at the wrist than the other (assuming you press and attempt to keep straight wrists..)
    when i dead lift i favour an underhand grip with my wonky shoulder too, i should alternate regularly but i dont..

    That's some good advice there Cal!!! Ive also been advised to try overhead pressing not too heavy for higher reps to parallel!! Also it could be due to training just chest for a long time so the muscles could be overpowering the back muscles pulling shoulder up and back??

    maybe smudge, but its only exaggerating whats already there.. imo tho you could skip direct back work and as long as you were deadlifting i think you`d be training back hard enuff to compensate for chest training.

    the shoulder thing is just something ive observed...
