    I've been experiencing some mild musculoskeletal pain in the chest/thorax area for a little while, and I'm wondering if there are specific exercises that could develop the area and eliminate this annoyance?

    I used to lift a lot of heavy weights (I had a very strong chest) for my pecs and never really did any kind of stretching or warming down, so I tend to think that might have caused this, but I can't be sure.

    In case anyone's going to bring it up, no... it's not a heart problem. I know for a fact that it's related to the muscles and/or the ligaments and bones.

    It doesn't stop me from doing anything, but a dull ache once in a while gets annoying. Any thoughts?

    If you know all about the human body then why are you asking us? Have you thought of maybe static stretching?

    I mentioned the heart because it was my initial guess. A few doctors and several tests later, I'm fairly confident it's related to the muscles/ligs.

    I'll try some stretching and see where it takes me. :wiggle:

    Cooldown.

    Oh noes, I can has lapsus! Seriously, this has to be the most unhelpful section on OT. Nothing but people ganging up on someone's legitimate questions. I'll just google shit from now on: thanks anyway, faggots.

    Same thing happened to me. It sounds like a dislocated rib on the sternum. My chiropractor put it back in place and I haven't felt this good in months.

    if you only had a strong chest and not an evenly developed upper body, you could have created and imbalance that will cause you pain.
