So about 7 years ago I had completely ruptured my pec major tendon. Made full fine recovery, eventually worked my way up to lifting decently heavy again but now have always kept the rep ranges at least 15 minimum. Before was aiming for at least 3 on my heaviest lifts then drop setting down. So I did get back on and strength came back up. About 2 months in and got a twitch in same side as ruptured tendon, but not a complete rupture as I was able to rerack the weight and just had pain and some slight strength loss. So saw doc and were getting mri since he is curios is one of the screws popped off the humerus. I did get slight bruising but nothing compared to the full rupture. He said hes never hear of anyone re-rupturing a tendon so dont know if any of you guys have ever heard or it? Hope im not the first, but I have a strong feeling it was just a muscle tear, but its my first tear to cause bruising so kind of unique. I have ripped the pec muscle before as well as hamstrings but no bruising. So now if feel like at least for bench once this fully heals i am going to keep my reps at like 25 if not 30 minimum. I dont know i guess my press is too strong for all my pec area muscle tendons etc so not trying to go under the knife again and def not for the same tendon. Any of you guys got injuries at weight you can hit at least 15 times?
