    I was only ever sore the day after I first worked out, though sometimes my wrists seem to go a bit dodgy. It makes me feel like I can't be working hard enough, yet I increase the weight till I'm struggling by half a dozen reps on the final set each time so I don't think it can be that. Maybe I'm just starting to recover faster, I dunno, anyone?

    I had that exact same problem when I started. Even after a few years, it still clicks, and does hurt occasionaly. I thought it might be something to do with genetics, if you're lanky then heavy weighst might put a lot fo stress on your joints or something. But I probably think it was bad form; I think I went in too heavy, too early, and ended up cheating on the excercises (swinging the weights, and using other bodyparts etc)

    Can anyone help me? I play a lot of football, and I mean a lot. So I'm really fit and have a lot of stamina, and have therefore never joined a gym or anything because I just wouldn't get any use out of the cardio equipment.

    I'm not really bothered about my body in terms off appearance, and certainly not in terms of proper bodybuilding, but I could really do with gaining quite a bit of upper body strength. So would joining any sort of fitness club be worth it, considering I wouldn't use the cardio equip. or the 'heavy duty' strength stuff?

    Thanks.

    Just get some dumbells and do it at home, far cheaper.

    No that is not normal KOH... take a lay off for a couple of weeks, check your form, check your diet, shoulder injuries can ruin months of hard work and they dont go away if you carry on training.

    KOH... shoulders don't naturally hurt when you train, or when you rotate them. As such it is almost certain you have an injury in your rotator cuff. Also the fact that it is in one shoulder rather then both says to me that you have used bad form in an exercise.

    Ultimatley it is up to you if you carry on training through the injury, if it is sufferable, it doesn't get any worse during or in between your sessions then I see no reason why you can't grin and bare it if you want to.

    I don't recommend it however, take a lay off, if it isn't better when you return see a doctor... do you really want to still be putting up with this niggle three years down the line?
