Woke up today and my chest is killing me. There is a sharp pain running through the center when I raise my arms or when I make certain movements. I always have soreness after chest day, but nothing like this ever. It's a different kind of pain. Do you think it is something that will go away or could I have injured something?
I can't say for sure, but you might have injured your sternum, or the muscle attached directly to it. If you take it easy for about a week and it doesn't go away, see a doctor.
If you're not lifting hard, you're taking up space.
Get the f$*# out.

"Sharp" pain is probably a bad thing. On the other hand, how old are you, because I always used to get pains in my chest/ribs (and legs, and arms, and knees etc.) when I was growing (ie. actually growing taller, etc. - not from training), and still do sometimes.
feels a little better tonight... hope time will heal it. I'm gonna take it easy on my chest and triceps for a couple weeks
