To all Gym trainers: pain in the forward part of the shoulder while doing a bench press, shoulder press, army push ups etc. IS NOT A NORMAL THING !!!! Its the body's way to tell us that probably an inflammation or at least an irritation starts at the rotator cuff muscles or tendons and that the area is being overloaded. This area is poor in blood supply, therefore its healing process in slower.

1st of all, stop the training or exercises that cause you pain. Emphasise more the work on the posterior (or back) shoulder girdle muscles and check the pain at a clinical situation with a physiotherapist. Don't forget, training into pain might eventually cause the inflammation to progress into a tear.
