    Tips for working around shoulder pain?

    My left shoulder experiences sharp pain and sudden weakness in certain motions and I am seeing PT for this. Any pressing movements will trigger the pain. I have removed incline DB press and DB shoulder presses.

    I plan on bulking closer to summer and was wondering if there's any way to have a good bulk without lacking shoulder development because I can't even do shoulder presses. At the moment I am cutting, and facepulls, shrugs, lateral raises are all fine, but I don't think those exercises compare to the effectiveness of a shoulder pressing exercise.

    Of course, I am just preparing for the worst, which is that I still feel pain come summer time when I plan to bulk. Any tips are appreciated!

    Get professional advise first for an accurate answer.
    I think doing what you can that doesn't hurt is ok but not ideal.
    You could do one arm DB press on the good side.
    There is evidence that training the good side has positive nuerological effect to the injured side.
    You might consider that,you search there is info out there.
    Good luck.

    Have you gone to a sports physio? If not, you should definitely see a sports physio.

    I wouldn't try to work around this.

    Use this time to bring up your side delts. Hardly anyone's side delts are "too big". Don't do anything that triggers pain. I've spent plenty of time putting presses as a second exercise and hitting a lateral first in the workout.

    basically do anything that doesn't aggravate your shoulder

    as mentioned you can still do one arm presses on your good side, there's at least some studies that support growth even on the side that isn't doing it. If it isn't long term, I doubt you would develop any imbalances doing it like this for the time being.

    Just go harder on the things you can do.

    You may want to consult with an Orthopedic Surgeon who works with athletes - this sounds like a problem you want to fix and not just work around. When my son was recovering from labrum surgery (so one shoulder that couldn't do any work for few months) he modified his lower body routine to be dominated by sled pulls, belt squats, GHD, leg press, reverse hypers. For upper body he was severely limited but he did a fair amount of work on various Hammer Strength iso-lateral machines (so work the good side only). Then as his surgeon and PT allowed he started to work both arms/shoulders on the various machines starting with no weight (just unloaded machine resistance) and gradually building up to where he was doing equal weights. Since this process was short term (6 months ish) no imbalances were developed and he came back fairly strong.
