Yesterday I was doing dips and on my last rep of my last work set I heard/felt a POP in my sternum. Didn't think it was that bad so I dropped the weight to +45 and tried another rep but I felt slight pain and didn't want to risk it. After finishing up my entire workout/getting home I posted what happened in my workout journal and researched a bit about Sternum pain but couldn't figure anything that matched my case.
Most are 'very common' and is nothing to worry about. But I believe mine may be more than very common. It hurts if I lean forward, look up & drop my arms (just like a DL position, which isn't good), and also if I look up & to the right or left. If I breathe in deeply there is the same dull/achy feeling as well.
Do you guys have any tips that would help? I told my parents about it but didn't make it sound like it hurt at all. I really don't want a weightlifting injury that would hinder my progress in any way. I already have a feeling I won't be able to do dips again- or anytime soon.
Here's a video of my form if it means anything.. This is 3 sets prior
Thanks so much
