Default Damn Shoulder Injury BAD

Im doing my normal bench. No issues. I want to go up a bit in poundage and get one of my co workers to spot me. He is a young guy but strong and he lifts regularly.
So, add the weight and start. Im pushing pretty hard and he helps me get the bar to full extension. On the way down im expecting him to assist if i get in trouble Instead-- about halfway down he lets go, my right shoulder fails and I now have a torn rotater cuff. I felt it tear and actually heard it. Sounded like tearing a piece of jerky in two.

Immediately I have zero ability to move my arm laterally. Nothing at all.

Called the doc, he sort of did an on phone interview asking what I could do and not do. He had me raise the arm passively ( with assistance) and see if I could hold it up. Once support was removed the arm fell lifelessly to the side and the shoulder hurt like hell. His diagnosis? Complete tear of the supporting tendons.

He says surgery is a sure need. Problem is I'm deploying to Iraq any day. Just waiting for the visa to come through. This would cause me to lose my position if it was noticed that I could no longer function. Im a bomb dog handler so I need my arms.

Lots of Advil, ice, rest, and im now able to function almost normal but at a weakened and painful state. This happened a week ago.

Each day I get a little more use and movement. I now move almost normally. So my question

Could this have really been torn or just badly strained? Seems to me if it was completely torn i would not have recovered any movement. Next question. Will, with time this get back to where i can lift again? I'm so pissed this sent me back. I told the guy that spotted me it wasn't his fault and Id be fine. Didn't want him to blab about me being hurt BUT I DO blame him in my mind for being such a shitty spotter.


This really sucks

Try dumbbell bench pressing, this way you donít lock your shoulders out.

Having had a torn rotary cuff and type 2 slap tear my days of bench pressing are pretty much over. Having said that with my dumbbell bench press Iím able to lift moderate weigh but focus mainly on higher reps and squeezing, so far I would say my gains are better than ever.

One thing I will say if your shoulder is causing you pain let it rest, using ice, ibuprofen and light exercises. Also some good rotary cuff strength exercises on YouTube which have also helped.

try to always tuck ur shoulders back and down before u press.. this will force the pec to do most of the work and not on the shoulder.. and as easy as it seems there is a right way to spot and a wrong way.. and most peeps out there really dont know what the hell there doing.. thts the problem with these commercial gyms these days.. i hope tht u recover in god speed
