The popularity of resistance training (RT) is evident by the more than 45 million Americans who engage in strength training regularly. Although the health and fitness benefits ascribed to RT are generally agreed upon, participation is not without risk. Acute and chronic injuries attributed to RT have been cited in the epidemiological literature among both competitive and recreational participants. The shoulder complex in particular has been alluded to as one of the most prevalent regions of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Progressive resistance strength training and the related injuries in older adults: the susceptibility of the shoulder
TLDR
The purpose of this article is to discuss the PRT-related injuries, and present an overview of documented shoulder injuries among the elderly, discerning possible mechanisms of injury and risk factors.
Shoulder Injuries in Individuals Who Participate in CrossFit Training
TLDR
Shoulder injury rates during CrossFit training are comparable to other methods of recreational exercise, and clinicians should be aware of training demands of exercises in CrossFit and modifications for these exercises to safely progress their patients back to participation.
Shoulder Joint and Muscle Characteristics Among Healthy Female Recreational Weight Training Participants
TLDR
The findings of this investigation suggest that female RWT participants are predisposed to mobility imbalances as a result of training and should consider the biomechanical stresses and adaptations associated with RWT when prescribing exercises.
Imaging of Weight-Lifting Injuries
TLDR
Although some weight-lifting injuries are readily apparent at the time of the injury, it is noteworthy that most injuries are difficult to isolate or quantify either clinically or with the use of radiographs.
Narrative review of injuries in powerlifting with special reference to their association to the squat, bench press and deadlift
TLDR
What is known about the relationships between the powerlifting exercises and the specific injuries or movement impairments that are common among lifters and recreationally active individuals is summarized.
Exercise Modification Strategies to Prevent and Train Around Shoulder Pain
TLDR
A summary of the literature related to shoulder pain in strength athletes is provided and strategies to reduce the risk of shoulder injuries will be addressed.
Prevalence and Pattern of Musculoskeletal Injuries among Recreational Weightlifters in Nnewi, Nigeria
TLDR
Musculoskeletal injury is quite prevalent among recreational weightlifters with the shoulder being the most injured body parts and training multiple times a day and lack of supervision were associated with the prevalence of injury.
Shoulder Joint and Muscle Characteristics Among Weight-Training Participants With and Without Impingement Syndrome
TLDR
The impaired joint and muscle characteristics identified among WT participants with SIS are not without consequence, as they are associated with shoulder disorders in both general and athletic populations, and strength and conditioning professionals should consider risk-related adaptations associated with WT when prescribing upper-extremity exercises.
Glenohumeral Extension and the Dip: Considerations for the Strength and Conditioning Professional
A significant number of resistance training injuries occur at the shoulder complex. However, there is a lack of research identifying predictive variables, which may increase the risk of these

TLDR
A classification scheme, proposing four definitive types of shoulder injury, assists in directing an effective management program and a sports medicine team working together with the athlete is instrumental in his/her return to sport.
Value of Resistance Training for the Reduction of Sports Injuries
TLDR
Investigations to date suggest resistance training can aid in injury prevention and screening of athletes for agonist and antagonist muscle strength imbalances can be utilised to identify athletes possessing a predisposition for injury.
Shoulder Joint and Muscle Characteristics in the Recreational Weight Training Population
TLDR
The findings of this investigation suggest that RWT participants are predisposed to strength and mobility imbalances as a result of training and should consider the biomechanical stresses and adaptations associated with RWT when prescribing upper-extremity exercises.

TLDR
Single set programs are recommended for healthy persons of all ages and many patients with chronic diseases, single set programs of up to 15 repetitions performed a minimum of 2 d x wk(-1) are recommended.
