    So I was out of the gym for like 6 weeks or so (maybe a little longer).
    I'm still overweight and just not happy with myself, so yesterday I started back in the gym.
    Did some powerwalking/running for 30 mins - then did strength training for about 30 mins. Took a shower and left feeling GREAT, and hungry. took a whey shake and drank it. Had some Tuna as well. By the end of the night my chest felt kinda tight, but I worked my chest so I thought nothign of it.
    Today i went to work then went to the gym after work. Did 30 mins on the treadmill again and then worked out biceps and back. Had a shake and went home. Ate some tuna again tonite. (I like tuna :) )
    Now my chest feels like its going to explode, like it's not muscle soreness, I know what that feels like, It feels like my heart is working really hard, I'm kinda worried about it. Like I'm not short of breath or anything, I feel pretty ok otherwise, but I just am the type that worries, so I'm wondering if I am being to hard on my heart?

    For reference, I'm 6'1 and like 255, My bodyfat is likely high, I don't know how high tho. I'm average build, on the fatter side tho.

    So what do you guys think? overworking myself or is it just my body being shocked because of all the activity its doing?

    Probably pec spasms, I had those pretty bad one time after an intense chest workout and for a while I thought my heart was beating irregularly and really hard but it was just a muscle spasm...

    Then again that could not be it.

    Not sure of resting heart rate of BP.
    I was hitting 180 on the treadmill at one point running so I slowed down. I was consistently at like 155-165. And then cooled down to like 120 when I got off... I'm sure it came down from there...

    Quite possibly as well. I do worry about my health a bit more often than I should.

    alright so I checked and my resting heart rate yesterday was 83 bpm.
    Which isn't ideal but every place I read said between 60-90bpm was normal
    So I'm on the higher end, but I'm a little over the ideal weight so I assume my heart is working harder.

    That being said, I think maybe I was wrong. The more I think about it and move my arms and chest. The more I think my chest is simply sore (did chest the first day back in the gym) and I'm just kinda stressed out lately.

    you know that you are supposed to check your resting heart rate in the morning when you wake up before doing anything right? and things like dehydration, and whether you are standing or sitting can affect it....that seems pretty high, and you count it for the full minute, not for 6 seconds and multiply it, because that increases the margin for error

    Well I did do it for a 30 second and doubled it. So thats not as big of a margin for error. Also it wasn't in the AM it was in the afternoon after I had sat in bed for like 1 hour doing nothing.
