My muscles are tight from working at the computer. If I shrug my shoulders back, there are muscles popping around in the back. If I move my arms up and back, my sternum area pops. Things are very tight.
I'd like to begin weight lifting, but I'm worried about doing more harm than good. Specifically with the bench press - my chest is already very tight - should I just avoid that exercise and go with the others, while stretching? I stretch occasionally but I'm at the computer so much that it simply doesn't help.
