Lat Issues While Benching

Well today i was bench pressing, and all of a sudden i felt like a pull in my right lat. The muscle seemed to either tense up or pull together im not really sure.

It seemed like a cramp, but went away once i placed the barbell back on the bench. There was no post pain, but some pain when it actually occured.

Am i doing something wrong while im benching? I thought i may have pulled a muscle, but it doesnt hurt afterwards.

It might have just been a cramp. You were probably just using your back to stabilize yourself on the bench while lifting. If you want proper bench form to compare to yours just look it up, I’m sure you can find something. lol
