    partially torn pec still not right

    I partially tore my left pec doing bench. I waited a couple months before doing any working out at all and now it's been about 8 months and it still isn't right. On bench and some other exercises, my pec still feels very precarious like it could rip again (with a bit of soreness) so I end up just switching to other exercises that don't seem to hit the pec the same.

    Any advice?

    Go to a physical therapist. If after 8 months it hasn't healed you may have to get some work done. Do you stretch out your chest at all?

    I do the old outstretched arm, hand grasping a pole and then turning my body outwards.

    Oh man, this sucks to hear from me!

    I have a complete tear, while I was getting ready for a tournament in November. They took an MRI, and it is a complete tear; I decided not to get surgery, haven't done anything since then (November 23rd is when it happened).

    If any others have similar experiences, can you please post them - I would greatly appreciated it.

    Vertical media, did you get an MRI and that's how you find out you partially tore it?

    I had to have surgery on mine and it will never be the same.
