    No workout or light workout with slight muscle strain?

    If I look over my right shoulder my chest hurts. Not a lot. But a bit.

    I've no idea how it happened. Last workout? Slept crooked? Weekend warrior construction projects?

    Anyway... Should I avoid a chest workout until the pain completely goes away, do a light workout, or just do what I normally do and just stop if it hurts?

    This is my first muscle strain since I've been working out. What bothers me most is that I have no idea how it happened. Wierd!

    Rest, Ice, Repeat.

    If it gets worse go see a doc.

    Rested. Didn't ice. But all is now well again. Did a Press workout on Monday. Chest now sore on the other side, but not like a hurt sore. More funny, ha-ha, damn-I'm-sore kind-of sore. Still though. Thx.

    Also, love that comment...

    Pretty funny, for a Welshman! :P

    At my *cough* advanced age I have found that theraputic massage on a regular basis really helps the aches and pains. I first started when I tweaked a pec muscle and it worked so well I go once every two weeks now. I'm not talking the relaxing version, when I leave I know my muscles have been cranked on. It is supposed to help draw out all the toxins that get stored in your system as well. All I know is it works.
