    Well, first off.. I'm probably going to have to see a doctor to really figure this out, in the meantime would like to hear from other people.

    I've always had weird shoulder joints.. they pop out easy.. It used to feel fine when I popped them out so it didn't really bother me.
    After working out for a few months and building muscle there, it would start to hurt when it tried to pop out...
    I try and make sure I do all my working out right.. right positions etc.. but it still hurts occasionally!

    Any one have some suggestions as to prevention or similar stories?

    It may be weak and unstable muscles in the area causing your tendons to pinch and grind. A good PT should be able to help you.

    PT might help.

    But really, if your shoulders used to 'pop out' easily, ie a 'voluntary dislocation' you might have too much room in the joint.

    There is a surgical procedure called thermal capsulorrhaphy that can potentially fix it.

    Just go see your doctor. I've had surgery on my shoulder and all I can say is be really really careful with your shoulders, cause once they're messed up getting back to functional (let alone full force working out) is a bitch.

    i had major should/back problems which caused me to stop working out for a year and a half) got back to the gym last year..but my advise to you is to get your doctor to look at it and also you may want to get a good physio (worked for me).
    But most of all when you work with a trainer, make sure he knows all about kinesiology and knows about your shoulder so you can work on making it more stable and stronger without injuring yourself any further (and again this is after you talked to your doc)

    Google Eric Cressey "shoulder savers". Very good information.
