I’ve got one question and one big problem.
When I have high heart rate while exercising I feel pain in my chest on the left side. I don’t know if this pain is connected with pectoral muscle or what but I just can’t lift weight like I had before. I think this pain is not connected with my heart because heart doesn’t lie so on the left side. When my heart rate isn’t high I almost don’t feel any pain.
Do you know what’s wrong and how to “repair” this?
My food is good, I’ve been dealing with weight lifting for some years now, I also didn’t have any problems in the past.
Maybe this information is important … I always train with almost no rest so my average heart rate is from 150 to 160bpm. But I don’t know why would this be a problem, because I’ve trained like this for a year or so.
Thank you very much!

This is DEFINITELY a question you should be asking your doctor. But it could be as simple as a cramp. Do you warm up properly?

Of course I warm up properly and always. I also cool down after workout. Some friends said that this pain could be a result of too high intensity and very high heart rate for lifting weights. But unfortunately I’m not used to rest to much between sets or exercises in workout.

Pain from the heart goes to the left side, and to the shoulder and left arm. This is due to inaccurate pain sensors in the organs inside your body. They don’t need to be accurate like the skin for example.

I cramp like the devil if I do not hydrate properly. I always have my Xtend bottle in hand when doing my cardio and lifting. If you are on any stims like NO xplode or Jacked do stop use, they can lead to blood flow and pressure issue that could trigger an already existing problem.

I do not take any supplements except protein powder and carbohydrates + omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins&minerals. That’s it. I’ll decrease workout intensity to see if this is a reason. If not, then visiting a doctor would be a good decision. Thank you.

Is it possible when I exercised that my internal muscle on the left side got too much tension and that’s why it hurts? Because when I jump (jump rope for example) I feel pain just like I having sore muscles.

Yes this might be nothing to worry about. But if it is you don’t want to take any chances and get it checked out.

You have the same complain with my cousin about 3 months ago. He had a severe chest pain and head ache. According to the doctor its his heart, Their are some abnormality of his heart. He was advise to take enough rest. Also, he took a supplement MX Mens Multi-vitamins as a maintenance to Improved his immune system, and most importantly to prevent Heart Diseases. After weeks of taking MX Mens Multi-vitamins surprisingly hes chest pains were gone. :)

I hope you saw a physician.
Pain on the left side of your chest during exercise may be acid reflux, but it could also be the cause of the number 1 killer in the USA — heart disease.
I would go see a doctor ASAP to get checked out. I don’t know what your demographics are, male, 50s, cholesterol, smoker, etc. but if you have risk factors (or even if you don’t) this is something that needs to be worked up by a professional.
