Any time I bench or even do pushups I get a strange feeling in my shoulder/rotator cuff and sometimes my arm feels a little numb. What do.

No. I'm aware that's the game it (1024) is based on.

Fell asleep at around 1 AM yesterday. Woke up around 7, phone was dead so no alarm. Decided I could get an hour more sleep. Woke up at 2.30 in the afternoon. Never slept that long before. I bet its due all the volume I've been doing lately. Most workout range from 2,5 - 3 hours. Rest times are pretty long, but squatting, benching and deadlifting + accessory in the same workout 3-4 times a week is taking its toll.

 

Anyway, over the last month I've realized my whole body is twisted.

 

Right shoulder has much worse external rotation.

Right shoulder is more internally rotated.

Left shoulder much worse overhead ROM.

Left hip flexor and quad is stiffer.

Left hip has worse abduction.

Right hip sits higher / right leg is "longer".

I've got limited ankle dorsiflexion.

Left glute doesn't activate as much as the right.

 

Can't squat over 80-85% for reps without twisting my hip and whole body to the right. 

While benching, the right shoulder glides out of position and has the right side of the bar come up faster than the left.

 

Tried fixing it myself for 6 weeks or so with lots of stretching, myofascial release, deloads, unilateral work, added band tension the weaker side, etc. Barely any progress.

Time to get some professional help in the form of sports physios and maybe even a powerlifting coach who are known for lots of prehabbing.

IME that's one of the downsides of linear periodization. So much emphasis is placed on increasing load weekly that form becomes compromised slightly as the body takes the path of least resistance to get the weight up. Less than optimal form, when viewed in a vacuum, is looked down upon. In the context of putting X lbs on your squat in so many weeks, people are much more likely to tolerate it.

There is definitely a balance. I personally have found that I really have to mentally commit to progress. At the same time though, like Lord Kevin said, "control the weight, don't let it control you". Shit reps are not worth doing and growth/strength gain potential diminishes over time.

i can relate, left shoulder is 1" higher, right leg is 1.25" longer and my hips and hammies are a mess.

i dunno i am a big believer in the occasional bad form monster weight thing if you always use good strict form just as a means of muscle confusion. i sometimes sloppy curl 225 on a barbell just to completely waste the bi's

Have you done anything to fix it? Any success? 

 

Can you perform the movements correctly?

 

As it is now, I can't train heavy enough for powerlifting purposes.
