I'm sure most seasoned gym-goers had sustained at least an injury or two despite adopting the right posture and method of training, well, at least those that I know. But has anybody pulled a muscle or tendon? There's a distinct uncomfortable tugging feeling of the muscle when you stretch it. It's quite a weird feeling, definitely different from the common "neck sprain" sensation in a particular spot. I surmise that I sustained that injury when doing bench presses, and over-stretching the muscle when I had to lift it the bar a tad higher just to put it back in place. I don't see many guys having to lift the bar higher than is comfortable; they just settle at one notch below. For those who do, do you encounter the same problem? It took me two weeks of rest to completely recover from that disconcerting sensation/injury.
