I was trying to set a new DL max today. My current max is 205 raw and I was on my 195 attempt. The only thing different about today was I was hungry - didn’t eat beforehand.
I pulled it with some struggle and sat it down. As soon as I released tension my whole upper torso went through excruciating pain. I have some heart issues and for a second thought I was having a heart attack.
I felt like I had pulled my neck,traps,ant delts, chest and upper stomach all at the same time. I just sat down and grimmaced for a couple minutes while I let the pain subside. I’m writing this about an hour later and it all feels fine now.
Has anyone ever had this kind of pull/pain happen to them?
Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening again?
