Hey....anyone done this before? I did it 3 nights ago whilst using the ab wheel at home. Went a little lower then i was ready for and straight away felt a pain in my chest on the left. Stopped immediatly but went gym next day as it didnt feel too bad.

Big mistake! Suffering yesterday and today. Hurts when i move and breathe in. Just hoping it doesnt affect my future training too much

Ive been there. No worries. Just a mild strain. Freaked me out too the first time it happened. Couldn't work out right for a week. But it passes like any strain. Just let it heal properly for a couple days, so not to further injure the area

Don't go above your weight threshold and this won't happen

I didnt do it using weights. I went to low on an ab wheel. Learnt my lesson. When i do weight i do what is comfortable and move up with what i can manage keeping good form.

On a wheel your using your own weight..

I wouldn't worry if i were you.  I didnt have to resort to pain killers.  But that feeling of an elephant sitting on your chest as your breathing was rough.  Took 3 days for pain to subside.  Another few just to recover and make sure.  This time next week you will forget you ever had a chest pain
