I'm just wondering if anyone knows the answer to why my pec pops (pulls, strains, tears) when I'm doing flat and decline presses, but never incline??? Over the last 4 years I've strained, pulled or partially torn my left pec 4 times and strained my right pec twice. Its been hell. But I only injur it doing flat or decline dumbell or barbell presses, I have never even gotten close to injuring it doing incline dumbell or barbell? Its not a form or warm-up problem, trust me. I have spot on form and warm up forever. Its gotten so bad that I almost only do incline presses now. My incline working weights are about the same as my flat and decline weights now because my upper chest has grown so much. So is it just gentically weak middle and lower pec tie-ins? Is it easier for all people to pop a pec doing flat and decline work and I am just getting older so I'm getting injured more and its normal if you lift hard? I understand I may be contributing to the problem by not giving te injuries enough time to heal as I usually like to get back into the gym training (kickboxing and BJJ) asap, but I do do my best to give the injuries a good amount of time to heal. What do you think? Any info or injury avoiding suggestions would be really appreciated. Its gotten so bad that I can feel the guitar strings getting tuned when I do simple pushups sometimes. Its bad. Thanks.
