i did see a physical therapist for my shoulder rehab. to be honest though, i didn't get to finish the tail end because of money issues. i've almost got these handled, so i am looking to go back.
i did cable flies yesterday. i did feel quite a squeeze in my chest. my face actually got a lot redder than i would have thought. like more red than handstand pushups. the odd part was that i felt an almost painful squeeze in the sternum area. it was like those tendons were trying to pull so hard that it hurt. if i try to flex my pecs, i immediately feel this area get the same painful feeling.
my only history with injuries here is:
1. a year and a half ago i injured a rib while grappling. somebody was pressing their knee hard onto my chest (not good form, but it's a good way to be an asshole). i had to take it easy for a while until it relaxed.
2. i threw a really boney guy, and he landed on his side a bit. i kinda lost control and came down on top of him, with his sharp clavicle breaking my fall at my sternum. i had to take about 2 weeks off.
