little problem on the right-upper-back

Posted , 2 users are following.

I'm going to start by advicing you that i'm a well trained 17 years old but just recently i started gym training so the problem is surely some kind of overuse or poor technique. It has been 2 weeks since i started to feel this little pain delocalized in my right upper back. I couldn't precisely say what muscle is involved, but i can tell you the symptoms: i can't well contract my right latissimus in vertical pull movements, but no problem in horizontal pull; weakness and problem in vertical push and horizontal push so i can't use 100% of my shoulder and chest; then some little problems on the right even in other exercises like biceps curl or triceps ext.

I noticed watching myself in the mirror that my right scapula is always sharp: not adducted, abducted or anything. It is sharp, something is contracted and blocking it from doing normal movements. You can see it the most when i front raise my arm: on the left my scapula is abducted and relaxed, while on the right you can clearly see the sharpness of the scapula.

Please help me!! I live in italy, i can't leave my home right now and i can't even workout well! I'm in panic!

    You are new in the gym, over time your body will get used to the pain and you will look and feel great.
