That is another point I should have raised maybe: when you're identifying the root cause of an injury or tightness you need to look at everything you do not just lifting. Sure my elbow hurt when I benched but I realised that I was leaning on it all day long at my desk. You spend a lot longer out of the gym than you do lifting. Make sure you view the whole picture.
