I noticed in the last year that when I do pushups I get shoulder/deltoid pain.

I train a lot of BJJ and dont do any heavy lifting. Yet I still do body weight exercises, but those never give me pain.

Im thinking of dropping the pushups and do handstand pushups instead.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Need more info.

Where exactly on your shoulder do you feel the pain?

Is it easy to pinpoint, or is it non-specific: sort of "in here, somewhere" kind of pain.

Does it run up into your neck, or into your back, or down your arm? Is your neck really stiff and tight afterpushups?
