    No real advice other than maybe seeing a physio about a possible neck strain. Since the nerves affecting almost all of the areas you mentioned go through there.

    How's your neck mobility after this...

    I often get tightness in my mid back. When I pop it my back feels better as well. I sometimes even get some cracks out when I foam roll my back.

    So I put some spare weights under the bench legs for my last workout, bringing the base up to standard height.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I doubt that appealing to gym management to put some mats under the bench would get me anywhere, so I might as well stuff some plates under the legs. For anyone who's...
