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.

whats the going rate (london) for a personal trainer , I want someone who will come to me rather than going to a gym. 2/3 times a week, I already run 30-50k a week but I need someone to work with me on my core and help shift weight I'm carrying up top I guess hour sessions mostly its someone to make sure I'm doing it as just having a plan etc ill always find a reason not to..

cheers, I thought that might be the case
I’d mainly be using them for slow, controlled weighted pull ups, chin ups and dips. There’s probably not going to be enough headroom indoors for muscle ups anyway. I don’t use kipping for anything, so no worries on that front.
I have a doorframe pull up bar now (the standard iron gym one) but don't like adding weight as it’s damaged the doorframe so wanted something a bit more robust that I could stick in a corner of my room for when I'm too lazy to make it to the gym/nearest outdoor bars over the winter
garden ones look great but I'm probably going to be in a flatshare with no (or very limited) outside space

Just get gym rings and straps and throw them over a tree if you have garden or park and do ring pull-ups. Wooden Pro Circle ones on Amazon are great for callisthenics.
