you didn't sign up for golf man, it's just part of the game. Build a stronger core and your ribs will be less likely to get hurt.

The only way that I ever hurt a pec was when throwing a punch and catching a rope, tore it up pretty good. I don't know how else you could hurt that muscle unless your muscular and didn't stretch.......Rockin':boxing:

Try to sleep on your back if you can. Keeps your weight off it.

Advil Baby! It's the true Breakfast/nightcap of champions..Check you opponents gloves..the padding cap break down pretty fast..And Wraps, people sometimes throw some sort of unfair Knuckle protection in..

Is it sore to run?

When I did something nasty to my rib took 4 weeks to recover, probably because I trained on it though.

Running was a struggle lol.

That's about all I can do mate is run .No i'm surprised .I'm just after a 6 mile run there mate and it's feeling alright .I can't do any conditioning drills though or go to boxing . Burpees , bagwork , any intense bodyweight training .The nurse said 1 week and think's it's a bruised pec but i've been a bit worried incase it's a rib cartlige they can take months .After that though mate i'm hoping for a few days but don't know .I don't think it was the pec it felt more like something behind it rib or cartlige but here's hoping .

Stretch arm across chest feels as if it's strengthing it .That's the good thing if it's really a pec bruise ( days ) If it's a cartlige month .Hoping for the best :boxing:
