    Oh man... What motions, if any, are painful? Could easily be the Infraspinatous or Teres Minor....depending on symptoms of course but judging by the location of the hematoma and the exercise you were doing i'd put my money on one or both of them....


    Itd hard to tell in the pics bc im using a phone, but is there bruising on your elbow as well?

    2-3 pops happened simulataneous in the stretched position of the pullover...i was able to complete very lightly hammer pulldowns, hammer rows, hammer shrugs, bb curls, hammer curls on friday after it happened...my thinking too based on the dark part of the bruise being horizontal and up so high is that it's teres also...i can bend my arm when in curl position about 90 degrees but when raise straight to the ceiling only 20-30 degrees...the bruising near the elbow is simply from the lymph fluid and plasma buildup i'm sure and stretching the skin...it actually feels better today than yesterday yet looks worse today lol...i'm a radiography student so i'm somewhat knowledgeable on things, but obviously no expert...also holding the gelpack under my arm by just squeezing it closed to hold it and not using other arm, i can feel a slight pierce in the rear delt tie in area but deep and not superficial

    if you look in member's pic you'll see more pics of the injury from saturday and sunday

    That sux bo. hope you heal fast but, I fckn love DB pullovers as a finsher on back day. I have always done them and always will. NOTHING gets my lats as sore as DB pullovers. I know it's supose to be a chest exercise, but I have never felt in my chest. Honestly, my favorite back movement!!!!!. But I really do feel for you bro...

    Damn bro that looks horrible. Do you plan on getting an MRI? I didn't have that kind of bruising on my pec rupture or bicep rupture. I would probably freak the fuck out and pass out if I saw that on my arm

    That's scary to see. I hope you find out what the hell is wrong and can get back soon.

    I've never done them mostly because I don't know what the hell it works out. I see guys do it on chest day and say it's the best for upper chest and I hear guys say it's great for back lol

    better ROM today...swelling is going down...bruising is lighter color on inside tri today, but up high/inside is still tender to touch it...was able to push away from table in chair on two legs today without pain but it does feel like i did a super high volume tri workout and there's nothing left in the tank lol...

    I started doing these on the cable pulldown machine instead of doing the DB pullovers. We also have a machine for pullovers as well, this definitely makes me not want to do DB pullovers

    well it looks like the bruising made it look alot worse than it really was...alot of broken vessels...swelling is gone completely...i'm able to bend it almost completely again too...still blood and bruising from real delt to wrist, but it's fading quickly the last couple days...the original black dot that showed immediately is gone too...i'll be back lifting next week

    there's still something not right in the shoulder joint...i can't do certain movements even after warmups...

    i no longer do cross bench dumbell pullovers...i learned a great alternative that i do as finishing movement or pre exhaust depending on how i'm training that day...stiff arm pulls with rope attachment...got the idea from article on mark dugdale

    I have done db pullovers as a chest finisher, but it does tie in with the lats too. I am thinking the OP went too deep into the stretch, and somehow tweaked his rotator cuff.

    I greatly prefer the straight arm pull downs over pullovers. I feel a much better stretch and all around better feeling

    Decline bench pull overs are a lot safer and a better all around development and stretch........one of my favorite exercises, back day or chest.

    I'm not sure why I didnt notice this before, but you are allowed to upgrade your phone to a non flip phone and get an Android or an iPhone. It is the year 2013 and the Star Tac is a bit dated. Just saying...LOL. JFWY
