After a combination pull-up, push-up WOD my buddy told me.

I have the deepest soreness underneath my shoulder blade. A very painful soreness that makes it difficult to turn to one side and slightly harder to breathe. That combination of pull-ups and push-ups worked me over I guess. Could I have jarred a rib out of place slightly, but I have never really heard of that.

Jon- your work out could have hammered the lats, teres minor, and sub scapularis....they all can refer pain to the area you are describing. I doubt if it is a rib but if the pain persists maybe see an orthopod of a GOOD D.O.

i get the same thing. usually due to muscle spasm due to over training. too much freestyle swimming for me. tennis ball massage(just lay on it and move around on the tennis ball)and advil for associated inflammatory response.
