Thoracic Pain after Front Squats or Push Presses


What causes a sharp , "take your breath away shooting pain" in the thoracic area after racking weight following these exercises? It is sudden and leaves as quickly as it comes.


can you be a bit more specific about where.

does it feel like spinal disks or muscle or what.


No pain during movement but as soon as weight is racked sharp pain is felt between shoulder blades where it takes my breath away just for a split second then completely gone with no lingering sign of an issue. This also happens to a friend?
