View Full Version : is this an injury to worry about? (pic)

I just had a shoulder workout and when showering I noticed i had some weird marks on both my shoulders...
They hurt as well but its durable...
Did i overwork the muscles, are these stretch marks,...?

sorry for the ignorance...


ps no dumbbell or barbell fell on or touched my shoulders...

My guess is you just busted some blood vessels, nothing to worry about unless you get a lot of pain, then see a doctor. Judging by the pics it should look like a bruse in a few days

iusually get those from the calf raise machine where the wrinkles in my shirt sit on my skin...it never hurts for me tho

thanks a lot for your comment ihop1411!
it could explain a lot (if not everything) since i did a couple sets on the calf raise machine :D
never had em before from the calf raise machine but then again i never did that kind of weight on it either

You should be fine. I've had it before from pressing my traps very hard into the bench when bench pressing. Went away in a couple days
