Chest Pain When Stretching

When ever I go to strech it hurts the side of my chest. I have been looking into bench press injurys trying to find out ways to keep my bench going up without messing up my body and lots of people who tore a pec say thier chest fet verry tight before they benched, so this has me woried.

is this bad? should I strech?

I have added some mass to my chest and I never strech so it might just be me realizeing how limited range of motion I have compared to what I used to. But that shouldnt cause pain should it?

Well for starters, in that pic that is not a chest stretch, it’s a back & shoulder stretch. The circle is on the ahoulder???

Look up Ian King’s “Lazy man’s guide to stretching”. It has a good run down of stretches and some good examples of chest stretches.
