Thoracic Pain after Front Squats or Push Presses


#1

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.


#2

can you be a bit more specific about where.

does it feel like spinal disks or muscle or what.


#3

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?
