Hello there,
welcome to health care magic forum,
Your complaints are suggestive of severe spasm of scapular stabilizers.....
BENCH PRESS is a action of Serratus Anterior muscle..... and this muscle is more prone to get injured in you....
If you have pain and tenderness now then you have to opt for cryo pack with vapo coolent spray and rest at least for 4-5 days......
In case it does not subside you need to consult your sports Physio and get examined clinically......
wish you get back to your active exercises soon....
