    See a doc soon as possible.
    Tears sometimes take a day or two to show discoloration if it's a deep injury.

    The best protocols for hypertrophy/muscle building would be a good intensity bodybuilding protocol where your focusing more on the muscle your using than a lift.

    IMO the floor press would be more of a tricep/lockout movement for the BP.
    The lower half of a BP from chest to half way up hits the front delts a lot.
