today I was doing deadlifts, they weren't especially heavy or anything, just normal working weight, and by the middle of the second set and all through the third my right trap felt like some one was jamming a pen/ice pick/etc. in it in one very small area, any ideas?
maybe a pinched nerve? i'm not a doctor, but i play one on the internet. relax for a day or two and see how it feels.
did you turn your head (to check out a girl) during the rep.
This can really pull a muscle up there.

With anyothr exercise checking out a girl is a plausible reason, but I'm as focused as I can be during deadlift, interesting theory though, and it doesn't hurt at all when I was in between sets, or after I was finished, only while I Was actually lifting the weight, and only with deadlifts
