This guy was in his mid 40s. Pretty buff. He was bench pressing his "max" and felt a pop. The pop turned out to be his pectoralis major tendon. The image is pretty impressive b/c the bruising pretty much outlines his whole pec muscle.

Treatment is long term rest.....sometimes surgery. This guy is a brick layer, but he was more concerned about when he could work out again.

Ouch is right. This just happened to one of my Sailors.

Would quinolones put someone at risk for this type of injury too?
