    Over the weekend I started a thread about a bad chest pain. Turns out that I tore some intercostal muscles.

    What kind of down time am I looking at till I can start to train with heavy weights again?

    I'm assuming you saw a doctor, what did he/she say?

    Sneaking suspicion: You didn't like the Dr. answer and hope someone tells you less time.

    I've torn this before also. It took 3-5 weeks for it to be healed up all the way.

    I never said that I didn't train. What hurt the most was setting a dumbell back on the rack.

    One time I got pleurisy from sneezing too hard. It would hurt like hell when I would breathe. It sucked, too, cuz it happened right at the beginning of the hockey season.
