Um that may be what’s bothering me (the acromial thing). I’ve done maybe more fly the last 6 months than my entire swim career before and I enter my hand above my shoulder (I believe) so this causes some stress.

working solutions: I’m removing fly for a week and I started lifting weights for some stability. I use a very similar system in the weight room as USRPT (not HIIT) and I don’t fatigue myself. I’m not taking any ibuprofen so I don’t aggregate the issue. I also warm up with some push ups.

I’m 35 and have been swimming for 20+ years with no shoulder issues before. I “think” the issues began when I started taking creatine and noticed an increase in initial set power. But it could be from all the fly as well.
