Today, on my first exercise, second set of Dumbbell bench press I had a slight twinge and pain in my left pec forcing me to drop the weights. I reassesed myself and tried again with a very light weight and it was extremely painful.
I ended my weight training session for the day and came home. When I flex it, it feels fine until I get to the top part of the muscle. If I did the crab pose it would hurt bad.
I’m hoping that this is just a pulled muscle or slight injury and nothing major requiring surgery.
I HATE setbacks like this.
I’m not asking for an internet diagnosis, but what I am asking is if any of you have had a torn pec, what were your symptoms, what did the doctors tell you, basically what was your experience with it? I am going to take a week off from any pressing movements and see if it doesn’t get better. If it does then no worries, but if it doesn’t it’d be nice to read on what some others experiences have been so I have an idea on what I might have to go through.
I know it was from warming up half assed and possibly not being hydrated enough.
So learn from my mistake here, your not invincible and take all the proper precautions.
Geeeez I feel like quite the post whore lately…lol
