    This week I trained chest with a mate...

    My work out days got moved to different days this week due to late working etc and then my mate rung and asked if I wanted to train.. I had done chest 2 days ago and he was up for a chest work out.. As I was a bit muddled in my training schedule I thought, what the hell do chest and start back on the sun, tues, and thurs split...

    So I did chest twice in 3 days ! lol I actually once heard that that can be benefifcal as a shock technique.. Mind you it was in musclemag !

    Anyway I did flat and incline bench and a set of flyes..

    the 2 latter were not normal exercises for me..

    I just noticed last night (3 or 4 days after) that I have a red mark on my upper chest (beneath my arm pit).. Like a burst blood vessel....

    You think it might have been the flyes, or the new incline bar movement ? Or too much chest training ?

    Anything to worry about ? This morning it appears to have gone down some anyway..

    I get the same thing, usually on leg day, although it appears on my chest, and biceps. Lasts for a few hours, up to a few days.

    I looked into it a little, and came to the conclusion that it is just a heat rash.

    Don't really know if that is 100% correct, but it's a good enough expliantion for me. Never had any problems related to it, so i doubt there is anything to worry about.

    maybe you just popped a vessel or something from the excessive training; r u you sure its not a little stretch mark?

    hmm well it has nearly gone now so I am guessing it was just a popped vessel from overtraining, or maybe going to far down on flyes.. Ahh well all is good now

    Hey Hulk, the red mark I had (which I thought was a stretch mark) may not actually be a strech mark either. It seems to be disappearing, I'll send you a picture of my arm pit if you're interested

    i get little red dots normaly when deadlifting or leg pressing very hard especially when doing low reps to faluire. the worst time was when deadliftin 530 pounds for my 1rm i had red dots all over my forehead neck and even some of my eye lids. it took about 2 days to go and i looked like alcoholic as my face was red and patchy. But my back was sore as hell and it felt good.
