Today my goal was to get through my chest/tri/delt workout. My workout consists of 4 exercises for chest, 5 x 5 “autoregulation principles” and for tris and delt 3 exercises 5 x 5 too. Now my last chest session was on friday (two days rest it has been) and like normal i did some stretching for bout 10 - 15min and then I took some SHOTGUN 15min before the workout today.
I got under the bench press bar and did 15 reps to get warmed up, my shoulders felt a little tense (did back on saturday), i then proceeded to warm up with 50kg x 12 reps, 60kg x 12 reps and then was gonna start the first of my 5 sets, starting at 80kg, goal of getting to 100kg x 5 reps.
2 reps into the first set on 80kg my left peck felt like i had just worked the balls out of it the day before, really tight and stretching, it burnt a bit but i continued. In the end I had to only do one exercise for chest as the pain got way too much. The whole day it has been tender and my chest literally feels like i pumped some iron like yesterday. I then just trained my delts and tri’s, which was fine.
Have i pulled a muscle in my chest due to incorrect working out or poor resting periods? has anyone had this time of injury before? How long did you need to recouperate and so forth? If anyone could give me some adice or info id appreciate it
