I hope I'm posting this in the right place, but if not, mods please assist.
I tore the muscle right underneath the left side just beneath my ribs while stretching on the beach the other day - the one that connects to the back muscles. Its not bruised, but it's quite painful. I have a similar pain in a muscle in my back as well - presumably my latisimus dorsi?
This is the second time I've injured this in 3 months. The first time I was out of the gym for about 40 days entirely - I was JUST getting back into my stride when this happened, as there was still a little bit of pain.
My back seems like it will be okay, but the other pain is pretty substantial.
My question is, how can I safely train around this injury? What exercises employ that muscle the least? I don't want to lose another two months, and I really want to heal right.
Anybody have any experience training with this kind of injury?
Any and all advice is GREATLY APPRECIATED!
