    I feel you bro. I only listed my gym injury not my military stuff. Anyway, I understand better than most. 💪 Much Respect.

    Left shoulder AC separation. Happened doing rear DB flyes face down on incline bench, pin wasn't in place properly and slipped. Hyperextended the shoulder with a 20lb dumbbell in my hand. Couldn't lift my arm for two weeks. Happened when I was 19-20. Army doc said "800mg Motrin 3x daily and drink more water." Thing is still jacked to this day

    Herniated disc in lower back. Deadlifting 405 for reps, think I weighed 142 or so at the time. Got a tiny bit sloppy after the 6th rep and bam! Couldn't hardly walk for a week, had to wear a support for over a month

    Hyperextended/broken right elbow. Arm bar during amateur MMA fight. Ended up getting out of it but arm was dead and I ended up losing by TKO because my arm wouldn't work. I should've tapped before it popped but my ego got in my way. Never really treated right, still messed up to this day. This is the same arm that continually gets tendonitis like tennis elbow, golfers elbow, and in the digital extensors. This ended up happening again to the same arm sparring.

    Grade-2 stress fractures in both legs from ankle to knee. Started as posterior compartment syndrome from running with a heavy ruck for about 10 miles. Let it go until I couldn't walk. I can't run at all anymore without it flaring up.

    Fractured knee. Bad landing on a night jump, wind shifted and a guy below stole my air. Landed in a perfect squat position. Great form, not so great when falling out of the sky. Still causes lot of issues with squatting

    Severe neck injury from falling off of a building. Three weeks later got smashed in a MRAP that got hit by IED. Permanent stenosis, a syringomyelia in my spinal cord, multiple herniated discs, etc. Causes pain, numbness, and tingling in my arms and effects lifting.

    Tore ulnar nerves off the muscle in both arms moving a steel pole that slipped off the forklift. Reinjured it a few times lifting, especially bb curls.

    That's all I can think of right now...lol

    Thanks man. I want going to buy they're so pertinent to my training now with how they effect my training I figured why not. As you can see most of mine aren't lifting per se, but most invoice training of some sort. Maybe it'll help someone else not do the dumb stuff I've done in my life lol

    The only injury I've had in all these years is a hamstring tear from deadlifting. I was warmed up so not sure what happened. Took a few months off deads while it healed.

    My advice to prevent injuries is first and foremost PROPER FORM. From what I see at gyms, deadlifts (hyper extension, rolling shoulders at top), squats (leaning too far forward, butt hanging out), flat bench (less than 5 points of contact) and lateral raises (wounded bird trying to fly) are the worse.
    Egos prevent seeking out help... everyone's an expert...

    The second thing I would suggest is to PERIODIZE your training. A properly designed periodization program will balance training to failure with hypertrophy, and preperation with recovery.
    Good luck everyone.
    Be safe and smart!

    Periodize? Is that like changing your routine/volume/intensity depending on individual goals on a regular basis? Like lift heavy low volume for 8 weeks then lift lighter high volume for 8 weeks then straight cardio for 2 weeks then compound lifts for reps for 4 weeks, then iso movements heavy low volume for 4 weeks? As in periods of time where your workouts differ from each other? Sorry, Iím a bit slow....honestly I underestimated how complex weightlifting/bodybuilding really is...I see why itís important now as Iím older but when I was younger it was like ďwho cares as long as you look good and youíre doing somethingĒ..nah mean?......I think I should hire a reasonably priced coach....and a chef.....

    Now these days I keep injuring my left shoulder, neck and low back in the gym but these injuries were originally from sports and vehicle accidents.
    Same with me. Most of my injuries are a result of flying through the air and landing hard.

    All of these injuries were from separate incidents:
    Broken clavicle
    Head injury including a concussion that resulted in double vision
    Hernia or tear of abdominal wall on both sides
    Two shoulders that basically have had the shit beat out of them, no cartilage and bone spurs, right shoulder dislocates on certain movements
    Two herniated discs L4/L5 and L5/S1 that are herniated on opposite sides and radiating pain down the leg and for a period of time had foot drop from pinched nerve.

    As for injuries in the gym they have been minor. There is more than one way to achieve your goals. I never go for PRs, at least not with max weight as I find it counter productive. I go for higher volume to failure (within reason)

    Even with the herniated discs, until three years ago I was deadlifting 405 for reps 3 X 8 (thanks tren ). One day I just did not feel right about it and have not deadlifted since, and I have not suffered for it.

    You are on the right track.
    Depending on your goals, sport and/or competition, periodization breaks up your training into cycles with each cycle reaching a peak then switch to another cycle which emphasizes a different aspect of training with the goal of reaching an overall peak.
    This is how you can train 7 days a week without overtraining or chronic injuries.
    An example for a weightlifter could be 1. A prep phase focusing on form and gradual weight increase. 2. Hypertrophy phase focusing on 8-12 reps with 30-60 second rest. 3. Strength phase focusing on 4-6 reps with 3-5min rest. 4. A recovery phase where you "recharge your batteries." This phase is the shortest as you do not want to loose adaptations.

    It's so hard for me to stay in the gym consistently and train anywhere near 100%. I'm finding myself having to progressively back off my training; less weight, less volume, less intensity. It sucks.

    When I get in that funk I completely revamp whatever my "current" routine is and switch up with movements that aren't commonly or ever used by myself in the past, it's like a change of scenery but within the same scenery.. sometimes I change the times I go as well, I can only do the mundane and regular way of life for so long.

    Maybe switch to 3 days a week... drop deadlifts/squats... moderate cardio... more sleep... I usually dont go more than 2 weeks... try to let any pains heal up before I start up again. It's very personalized but I know when it's time to start again.
    Good luck.

    Its not so much mental, it's more physical, I keep getting injured when I try to push to 100% failure on some exercises. But it definitely is depressing and killing some motivation. Heavy Leg exercises like squats and leg presses will herniate disks in my back if I push to faliure, have to leave a few in the tank on all sets.
