I’ve recently begun benchpressing for the first time in my weight lifting routine, (previously i just did incline dumbell flyes).
I am inquiring whether anyone else has ever had an upper back pain while doing flat benchpressing? The pain is on the spine and is accentuated when i breathe in deeply and it flexes the said area.
In a week i had raised the weight by 10 kgs for reps which may have caused this though i can easily handle it, (in terms of muscular strength at least)
It did not hurt before this change but i can’t be certain the sudden increase caused it, maybe it is a certain threshold weight that my back can tolerate rather than the sudden jump.
Any incite would be appreciated.
