I believe I have pulled some muscle in my shoulder.
I do not know what muscle it is, but it feels "small" - the pain is very localized, and I can feel the pain when I massage the muscle.
I think the muscle is the anterior deltoid.
I feel pain when doing any chest pushing exercises - more pain when doing incline bench, least pain when doing decline bench.
Lots of pain when doing shoulder press, I can't even do this exercise because of the pain.
I have so far been limiting myself to decline bench and pec fly machine (the pec fly machine seems to keep the pain at bay because it restricts my form and isolates my pecs exclusively, no arm muscles at all).
I was aggressively exercising chest, and seeing results.
I want to get back into that, but I cannot with this shoulder pain.
I gave it one full week of rest - no gym for 7 days. I returned to the gym after the time off, benched, and the pain is back!
What other chest exercises can I do without aggravating the (I think) anterior deltoid?
