I was benching yesterday and felt great. I’m 38yo, 5’4" and ~ 165lbs. I pushed 275lbs and it wasn’t a problem. Went for 285lbs and stalled out and felt a tear, heard a nasty noise and dropped the bar.
Lots of pain. Went to the ER. They did nothing. No imaging, and the bastards wouldn’t even give me pain killers. ER was a complete waste of time and money. All the sports medicine and ortho places here are booked out 4-6 weeks.
Any good resources you guys can recommend? Peck, arm pit and inner tricep are sore and bruised up.
The mental “what if” worry/stress is honestly as bad as the pain.
