I strained or pulled something in my outer chest today, went all out on bench and paid for it. My question is, is there anything I can take to help with the healing? Obviously I'm taking a break from the majority exercises that cause irritation, but what else can I do? I'm on week 5 of my 10 week prop cycle so I'm a little disapointed with the setback. Thanks also, pain is located between outer chest and shoulder

Rest and ice with ibuprofen will help, but you have to let it heal or be able to train around it in as pain free and area as possible.

One week of rest will actually be good for you. You will come back stronger.

I like ice and a topical herbal medicine. The ice stops the inflammation and the topical seems to speed up recover.
