    Tearing sound near armpit while bench pressing

    Hello while i was bench pressing which i did nothing different than i normally do. On the way back up from chest heard a rip/tear sound but was able to push weight on up and rack it myself. Afterwards i could not push any weight with my left arm at all. Its 3 days later now and i have no bruising or deformity from what i can tell the muscle that connects from pec to armpit is just extremely sore still. Any ideas?? Im thinking since i have no bruising then maybe its not torn just strained i hope. Pain only hurts when i raise my arm up in front of me and it still hurts if i try a push up. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. My left pectoral is slightly more swollen than my right too

    Re: Tearing sound near armpit while bench pressing

    I think the only sensible thing to do is to stop the bench pressing for some period of time until the soreness/swelling goes away. Then if you want to continue bench pressing in the future, break into it with lighter weights until you gain confidence. But don't risk having the same thing happen again. It might be worse next time.

    Of course there's always the option of getting a doctor's opinion.
