does it hurt to breath?

If you hold your breath during a lift it could be (though very rare) that you can irritate a spinal-rib joint (costovertebral) in the back, nerves can send pain around the rib to the front.

Also, lots of weightlifters I see injure their serratus muscle during (usually) flat bench press because they don't use this muscle to stabilize their scapula during the lift.   

get checked out by your chiropractor.
