Haha, well, your speaking to the king of over analysis here. :L I have OCD, and it often carries over to my lifting.


Sorry I can't be much more help. Hopefully someone who knows more will chime in.


Hope you get it sorted mate.

The humeral head should remain in the socket, because all four rotator cuff muscles are attached directly to the scapula.

If you can pull the humeral head out, stabilization is not present.

Now, regarding the tear of yor AC Joint, I'm not sure. But you should be able to keep the humeral head stabilized by strengthening the four RC muscles.

Wouldn't recommend any pressing at least until you've assessed the beforementioned.

I meet an Older Powerlifter at my last meet. In his late 70's.. But one of his shoulders was messed up. He had to bench with an offset. When he set up he was off center about 2-3 inches. Looked odd... but for being in his 70's he benched over 300lbs. Might just change your grip placement and see where that gets you.

How are your Rear Delts developed?

I might have to do something like that. I experimented with that concept briefly a few months back. My left side felt stronger the wider I went, but right got weaker. When I was trying this, the bar felt most balanced with my right pinky just inside the ring, and my left middle finger right on thering. I stopped doing this because I didn't want my left and right sides developing differently. Reading your comment though, maybe that's my best move at this point.

I would say proportional to the front. Left side slightly stronger than the right.

I to had a severe Type III with shattered clavicle (end) and the Acromion. I needed a surgical repair with screws (6") holding everything together for 6 months. Total time in an immobilizer approx 16 months and two surgeries.

Rotator Cuff tears in both shoulders.

Best bench post meet was an easy 510.

Train all four rotator cuff muscles. External and internal rotation + abduction (lateral raises to 30-45 degrees)

Stick to bench if your shoulder blade isn't stable during OHP etc.

Now I don't know what the long out come is from doing this. Might ask around a little more.. But if one shoulder now has a different bone stucuture then the other. I don't think it would be that odd if a slightly diffenent hand position from one side to the other.

All his posts are like that. Been watching to many Kelly Starrett Video's. Only people I hear talk like that are young wanna be trainers and Crossfitters.

I've been dealing with a Slap tear in my right shoulder for a number of years and had quite the imbalance in symmetry as well from it affecting my bench press as well. I ended up treating with ibuprofen and rest and it seemed to resolve on its own. But lately, I've had the pain return and now my coach has me doing strictly dumbell presses and nothing at all with bb's for chest. Seems to be helping as far as the pain is concerned and hopefully with symmetry.
