Anyone know how I can stop my right shoulder from clicking when I do lateral raises?
I’ve suffered from the same issue for as long as I can remember. I blame the osteoarthritis. However, I do find it stops when I really get my posture right before I start the exercise. Shoulders back and down, pelvis forward, butt tightened, stomach in - that sort of thing.

Thanks! Yeah that’s what I do too because my shoulders round forward a bit 🙁 I guess I can boil it down to not doing them in a while

Glenohumeral joint is likely being squeezed too tight, probably heavily rolled forward shoulders. Try leaning forward and to the ground with your torso slightly, and internally rotating your wrists slightly, like you're pouring a kettle of water in each hand. This should engage the rear delts a little more and remove the pinch in the GH joint.

I just don't do lateral raises anymore.

No worries. If it hasn't been said already, stretch stretch stretch. Mostly likely the chest is tight from weak rhomboids/rear delts. There's some mobility work that can help, my physio got me doing shoulder external rotation work, and working on scapula retraction for a similar issue. Of course your issue could be different so I'd encourage you to chat to a physio if you can access one through your footy.

Thank youuu, yeah I should get the massage gun out. This year has been so up and down around gym training and I just feel so inconsistent with my upper body strength coming from a sport where you don’t use your upper body frequently.

Are there any accountants around here who know how to calculate your HECS Repayment Income?

I would go to my pay staff but my situation is somewhat unique and they can't help.

I am a currently working two part time jobs at two different NFPs and salary packaging each salary through two separate agencies.

I haven't been able to find a clear answer online as how to calculate it, but I think it would be something like ;

HRI = Salary1 + Salary2 - Salary Packaging + (Fringe Benefits * 1.8868)

At the risk of coming across like a moron, I had some issues back in the day with my shoulders and started taking glucosamine and it worked really well. Would it apply to this situation?
