I have been casually lifting a few years, only seriously lifting a few months. About a month ago I tore or severely pulled a muscle in my chest while benching. I waited several days without touching any weights then gradually got back into it.
After a heavier workout, that indicated I was almost back to where I was, i waited as long as I normally do. The following workout I pulled it again. Today, ten days later, that now familiar feeling tearing occurred as I tried to bench again.
General suggestions for Recovery time, and how to recover from muscle tears/pulls? Specific to the chest with workout ideas would help. Thanks!
