Mild chest pain on center of breast plate, aggravates on crossing arm, had done strenuous exercise. Serious?

I am 35 year old male in decent shape. I exercised pretty strenuously yesterday an all was fine going to bed. Just woke with a mild chest pain right about the center of my breast plate. The pain increases when I cross my left arm across my body. Not sure if this is just muscle pull or something more serious. No other symptoms.

Hi..newman.. the above symptoms are suggestive of musculoskeleton pain...
The pain may persist for a 1 to 2 weeks... analgesics are enough (pain killers)..
