Coach this seems to be a recurring thing for me. 2 or 3 times a year I suffer a pec strain/pull.
It usually happens on bench press but recently also happened on dips. Whenever I go heavy around 5 rep max.
I don’t want to give up the exercise altogether but also don’t want to end up completely tearing my chest and be really down for good…
The last resort I want to try is reading about super high reps to strengthen tendons and prevent future muscle injuries.
Maybe sets of 50 on bench and incline with light weight to heal and prevent injury.
- I also read about the STARR rehab method which is similar to this and is doing sets of 25 a few days after the tear to prevent scar tissue and promote faster healing…
Any advice will be GREATLY appreciated!!
