    i was doing incline flys last thursday and apparently i stretched too far down and out and had a bitch of a time getting the weight back up. well, after that my upper chest/shoulder are felt sore, but wasn't enough to sideline my workout. well, yesterday i did upper chest and there was still a nagging pain there. i looked at the area yesterday and in the light there are two tears in the area where it hurts that look like they could be stretch marks. the only problem is that it's hard to tell if it's something other than a stretch mark because i'm fucking covered in stretch marks.

    any ideas on what i should do? i don't think going to the doctor is really necessary, but should i try and ice it at night and see if that helps?

    take a week or so off. If it still hurts when you go back, then I'd go to the doc.

    the shitty thing is that i just had to take essentially a two week break because i had shitload of exams, lab reports, homework, etc. i'm trying to avoid taking anymore breaks anytime soon :hs:

    Take a week off and get back into weights doing light stuff to test yourself out or you can work out through the pain and never really give it 100% for up to a few months depending on the injury.

    Ibuprofen, muscle relaxers, pain killers, heat pads, sleeping on the floor and Icy Hot stickers can all speed up the recovery.

    I hope your testicles rot off, and you somehow manage to choke on said rotten testicle in the middle of the night.
