    I train muay thai 2 days, boxing 1 day and lift 2 days per week. My left rotator cuff has been hurting on and off for like a month now. Am I over training? My lifts are pretty basic
    Friday - Squats, dumbell snatch, bench, ax chops with the free motion machine Sunday - Pullups, rows, deadlifts
    Then Monday - Wed - I do boxing/ muay thai for around 2 hours each day

    I purposely cut out shoulder press and any shoulder isolation exercises, shrugs, and decreased the amount I bench and it still hurts, I'm planning on taking out wide grip pull-ups as well.

    I don't want to stop weight training completely but this thing is not going away

    The rotator cuff is a very broad statement, as there are several muscles involved. In addition, your punching decelerators (mid back) can cause imbalances in the rotator cuff. It could just be overuse.

    Please don't give injury advice.
