I hurt my shoulder on my first practice run on the boardercross track at mammoth earlier this season and its making some of the exercises in the gym a pain. For example, just hanging on a pull up bar initiates pain in my left shoulder. Dips are also painful... but I can bench and curl fine. Strangely, when I go to do squats, having to extend my left arm back to hold the bar causes some pain in my delt and makes doing the squat pretty uncomfortable...but after holding the position for awhile it seems to stretch my arm out and warm up the area so after 5 minutes or so its only marginally annoying and I can do the squats fine

I've noticed that its getting progressively better every week as I work out though...hopefully I'll be able to do legit pull-ups again soon

random note:
for anyone that's just starting out I suggest taking a look at the following website. You might have seen this guy on youtube if you ever search exercises. Basically just a guy who is super passionate about fitness and helping people out, not really trying to sell or promote anything which is always nice: Scoobys Home Bodybuilding Workouts
his info seems to be pretty on point with the general concepts brought up in this thread and in text you often read about this stuff...

I can completely relate to shoulder pain, Enigmatic. I have it at the moment and it's by far not the first time. Two seasons (end of season) ago I had to stop doing any upper body workouts due to it. That was a pricey doctor visit that provided knowledge of pec strains and slight dislocation (which came with a "popping" situation). I also had surgery for something else later that year, so the bills were big.

With my left shoulder the way it is at the moment, I can actually do shoulder presses (albeit not heavy) but I can't do bench presses. When I try to warm up with 135, it hurts like hell. Also having trouble with my right elbow. These two combined make pull-ups hell, but I am working them in...

I'm about to really change up my workout because I can't skate a lot and do even remotely heavy lifting. Stoked about more bowl and ramp skating this summer as I have been doing mostly street and a little park the past couple of years.

I lift twice a week, spin class 1-2 times per week, and ride a road bike on Saturday and Sunday (weather permitting) 35 miles each day. I regularly sign up for cycling events when they come up which are 55-75 miles. Starting to try to run and hopefully swim too. I'd like to train for some triathlons and eventually do an Ironman. It's all going to be dependent on how my back and knees hold up.

There are plenty of studies that disprove the myth that running is bad for your knees. As long as you have good form, running doesn't hurt your knees.

Barefoot running has significantly reduced my knee and back pain. I wear the Vibram Five Fingers.

Pshh I can't get down with the minimalist movement. I love my shoes too much. It does always piss me off in a race when some guy with five fingers or a different minimalist shoe passes me.

What about us skinny kids with fast metabolisms? I have a killer olympic bench at my house along with other exercise machines, but I feel bad as they mostly just sit there... I do enjoy working out and while I have packed on a couple pounds it seems not matter how much I eat (healthy too btw) or drink shakes it just seems to do me no good..

Sorry to sort of hijack this thread but I had to ask as its super frustrating.
Any advice?

It was weird running with them at first. It's gotten better with some time. I don't run far by any means. Just barely starting for a few months.

Just keep working out and eating right. Don't worry too much about gaining weight when you're young. Enjoy the fast metabolism. When you get older and you start packing on pounds, you'll be wishing for that fast metabolism again.

Muscle gains take a long time. Like years long. It takes real dedication and a general change in your lifestyle.

For reference, I've been lifting (4/5 days a week in addition to cardio 2/3 days a week) for a little over 3 years. In that time I've gained about 20 lbs of muscle. It's something you have to constantly work at. Otherwise, your progress will stall.
