I have this weird (bearable) pain in my chest whenever I try to bend my torso, or rotate my neck, touch my chin on my chest and other movements. I also had the same kind of pain in my upper back, but it got better it self in 2 days. This all started after I bench pressed on Monday. I'm pretty sure my form was good.
Slight curved back, shoulders in place, tucked in upper back, chest up.
I've stopped going to the gym since then. It's been 5 days and the pain have not gone yet. But, it is 75% lighter than the first day.
What can this be?
What should I do to speed up the natural healing process?
Is it okay to start working out early (before the pain 100% disappears)?
