Where on your shoulders do they hurt? If your elbows are up properly, the bar should be resting on meat, not bone. Your front delts should be able to hold the weights you're starting with without pain.

Hang in there! They get a lot better as you go along.
Thanks for the advice- the pain (front delts) is not intense- just different I suppose. I will take it slow.
The weight was very low (135 last set max)... I am weak and worthless. I lost sight of the Force.
Jedi, I am not.
