Need advice on an injury..
A bit of background, a couple of years ago I was DB pressing and my right arm “went”. Almost like I’d lost all pushing strength from the shoulder connecting the bicep/tricep (god knows!)… I gave it a rest and since then (until now) it’s been fine, although recently I noticed I was struggling on pushing on my right-hand side (odd, considering I'm right handed).
I recently tried to go up from 36 -> 38kg and my right arm couldn’t cope at all - couldn’t get the DBs into first position. I could then only just push the 34s which are usually relatively easy. Attempted shoulder press and again, it was too much..
It could have been overtraining, lack of warm-up, or simply weak. What’s the issue and what do I need to strengthen? Do I need to book in to a physio?

Sounds like a rotator cuff? Had a similar issue - didn't get physio or doctors. Mine just went and felt a pop in my shoulder (Which was also my stronger one).
It will be a mixture of all of them. Do some work on your supporting muscles - OHP with barbell will help massively with things like that.
To solve my issues, basically did 'dislocates' with a bungee cord everyday for about 3 sets of 10, gradually making the distance between my hands smaller. Also always warm-up no matter what, will always give that advice to someone especially when doing chest/shoulders. Do some 2kg dumbell variations to make sure your shoulders are warmed up and also your rear delts. Also when doing DB bench, keep your shoulders back and I always see people flaring out elbows, it's gonna fuck you up big time. Keep those elbows tucked.
If it really hurts, stop lifting for another week or so and see a doctor if its really bothering you - Just note they will just tell you to stop lifting heavy.
