After doing Squats, I was doing Leg Presses last week, moderately heavy with good form. Out of nowhere on my 3rd set, 6th rep, I felt and heard a "snap" in my lower left rib cage. Not painful, felt like a slight cramp.
I did 2 more reps and could feel something was wrong so I stopped to prevent further damage. I haven't trained since, waiting for it to go away. It's not too painful I only feel it when I "lean" on that part of my body and when I wake up there's some pain. I can't do a crunch without it hurting.
Anyone experience or seen this happen before?
Talked to someone more experienced and he said "that's why I never go too low doing Leg Presses and maybe it's fractured but it doesn't seem to bother you too much so it probably isn't." I was not going any lower than I normally do.
I would go for xray but I don't have insurance right now and besides they can't do anything for it either way so in my mind it's not worth getting one.
thanks in advance
