When I was younger I used to do alot of heavy weight training. I had a pain like you describe once and thought I was having a heart attack. It turned out just to be a pulled muscle in my chest.  I was 19 or 20 when this happen. Gas pain can also feel like this, along with more serious issues. Good luck.

It can be a chest muscle sprain.

Take NSAIDs, use ice packs and rest for couple of days for the pain to subside.

If pain continues then you would need a chest X-ray and also a need to follow up with an orthopedician.

Take care!
