Chest Injury


#1

Today, I was benching and I was working through my warm-up when on one of my reps at 205 I felt almost a tear or pulling feeling on the bone in the middle of my chest. It was when the bar was at its lowest point.

I used to get a popping in the middle of my chest in the same area after I would bench but it never bothered me. Trying to bench hurts now as well as going down on dips. It feels like the bone hurts more than the muscle but I'm not sure.
Any ideas?

I've had that happen and still don't know why or what it is. I would usually have to avoid benching that day and/or week. But I'd be fine later.

I also have "bone popping" in the center of my chest.
