Military or bench? I gave up the bench about 5 plus year ago. Every once in awhile I use it but it's sick light. I use dumbbells now. I dumbbell bench with a full range of motion. No half reps and a controlled cadence. Bodybuilding is filled with the delusional about their strength. I work with a guy that benches 400 at around 180.  Bench shirt with a ridiculous arch. I think the bar travels about 12 inches from his chest. I bet when I bench the bar is traveling over 20 inches. Physics 101 will tell you how much work is being done by load and distance traveled.

If the pain is that extreme, mobility is limited and weak when tested, it's more than likely a tear. It's just a matter of determining whether if it's grade 1,2 or 3. Grade 1 being a "strain" (strain still means tear) that can be rehabbed through PT, grade 2 means you can try rehab but more than likely surgery is needed or a 3 where surgery is unavoidable. Bottom line, get your butt to an Ortho that specializes in sports injuries ASAP.

It swelled after tearing I believe, pushing on nerves so that's why the pain I believe but I'm not an expert. The pain lasted over 3 days then gradually have been lessened. Now I only feel pain in some positions and when lifting or externally rotating. I can externally rotate to some degree but it is really weak. Have to drive with one hand now so thats abit challanging.

Have not gone to a Ortho yet have had work to take care of. I will look into that. Thanks.
