    ďCanít impinge,Ē Iíve heard and read it so many times on this site. Why are my shoulders in constant fucking pain? My supraspinatus and my tendons are constantly inflamed. Yeah, I can press #135 with a big hip drive but I canít pick up a jar of peanut butter off the shelf without excruciating pain. The advice of ďjust do more so the body heals the stressĒ isnít working either: itís been six months of pain as I slog through a progression thatís anything but linear. The only time I was close to pain free was when I missed 2 workouts in a row and skipped press on a third. Similar deal on squat with elbow pain and a constantly re aggravated adductor that just gets ripped up again and again. This program has not made me a whole a lot stronger but itís sure provided a lot of pain and injury.

    Then stop doing the program and get an actual diagnosis of the injuries. Or maybe be innovative and post a video of the lifts.

    Weird, I am currently rehabbing a rotator cuff tear with a slightly modified version of the press (pin press from about nose-level but everything else in accordance with the SS press), started with an empty bar suspended by reverse bands to make it even lighter, adding 5lbs a workout, I'm now up past 150lbs and my shoulder feels better than it has in 2 years.
