I think I have a mciro tear of my pec. Doing flat bench last night, I did 4 warm up sets working each progressively heavier. Started my work set at 315, planned on 6-8 reps. 1st rep was easy, 2nd rep about 3/4 way back up and I felt some popping and then burning in my right pec. Luckily my spotter was paying attention and helped me rack it quick. It is swollen, painful, but not discolored or mis-shaped which is why I believe its only a micro tear. Anyway, other than icing it now, ibuprofen and rest, how have you guys that have had the same dealt with it? Is there anything I can do to speed the healing?
