    Chest soreness

    Recently after my chest workouts I am really sore. I’m not sure if it’s an over 40 thing or I need to see a physician. None of my other muscle groups are this sore after training. This soreness is even affecting my sleep. The soreness last for two to three days. Does anyone else have this issue or am I just overthinking a natural father of time issue.

    Sounds like a programming issue, regardless of the age factor which may also contribute. Consider reducing volume a bit and if you're doing a bro split, choosing a program that breaks up the chest volume 2x/week or more. Adjust based on how you feel.

    Of course, see a doctor if you're concerned it's something more serious.

    -Thanks for the input I’m going to try and change things up. Since the pandemic I’ve been doing all push-ups and kettlebells. Maybe I need to get back on a weight lifting program.

    It is a good option to see if the pain is due to an injury or is simply pain from muscle work.

    Above advice is all good... I work my chest hard, buy after years of training my chest barely gets sore (unless I do a lot of flyes, and even then it's just a "good" one-day sore). Additionally

    I have had "Costochondritis" in the past: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-...s/syc-20371175

    It's no big deal except for the soreness. Basically it's "inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to the breastbone"

    Did you change up your exercise to something you don't normally do? Maybe you went much harder than last time?

    If it's not normal soreness and more of sharp pain, you might want to get it checked out if it doesn't subside in the next couple days

    I think it’s a combination of different muscle work and age. I’m still going to get blood work done to rule any thing medical out. Thanks for the response.

    I did change from weights to push-ups and kettlebells. I’m hoping to work through this soreness. Thank you

    All chest exercises aren't the same. While soreness is usually an issue with frequency (as in, you're sore when you stimulate the muscle to INFREQUENTLY), but I think that you're probably just hitting the chest from a different angle and the soreness will subside.
