Pain in sternum

  1. Pain in sternum


    I love doing dips, I used to be able to attach 135lb for sets but lately whenever I do them I have a sharp pain in my sternum, it's doesn't subside for a couple days and its not pleasant! Even with just bodyweight I'm having the same issue.
    Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue? If so how did you go about recovery?


  2. did your sternum pop at one point?

    look up costochondritis

    yea it happened to me about a year ago. it just popped while i was stretching on the couch and the worst pain ever occured. it subsided after a few weeks, and now it pops whenever i stretch it out. no pain anymore though. hopefully its the same with u

    i also did a lot of dips then. so that might be the culprit here

    This happens to me. Actually thought I tore a Pec doing flat bench dumbbells. It pops from time to time now but no pain.
