    Shouldar pain

    my shoulders use to hurt in almost the exact same place, mine was caused by not knowing how to bench correctly. i would essentially climb under the bar and start pushing. my shoulders dont hurt anymore since i have corrected this. so knowing nothing about you, are you keeping your pinching...
