I've been unable to do any good workouts on barbells because my left deltoid experiences this sharp pain whenever I'm pushing the barbell back up. I've noticed that if I don't bring it too far down, it doesn't hurt for a while but a) it eventually starts hurting again after a couple of reps and b) I feel like it's doing nothing for my chest. I try stretching it out/massaging it/rotating it to reach to it, but the pain only comes during the workout. It's frustrating because it feels like it's inside the muscle, and when I try to feel for the pain, I can't locate it exactly. I've tried resting and not doing barbells for a while, but it comes back whenever I do pick it up again. What should I do?
