Get Shredded!
Seems inline with some recent Q's..So,what bad injuries have you guys had and moreover,what lead to them..
For Example:lifting with young bucks at 45..or..A Trenwreck story or two..or..just wrong move or sneeze at the wrong TIME..

And for you guys laughing about a sneeze..that shit isn't funny when it throws your back OUT..

We could learn a few things HERE..That just might one or 2 of you to think Twice..
Before...days out of work..ER visit or the Knife...

So..lets here the Good..Bad and Ugly Ones..

So Z I haven’t had a lot of training injuries but I have actually thrown my back out sneezing and carrying a 5 pound laundry basket. That shit was no joke and I was literally out for over a week on both of those times…. Not good lol. We build multi million dollar homes and that’s a lot of work doing that so to actually throw my back out when sneezing or carrying laundry basket and not while doing the 5000 other things I’ve done in my day is just ridiculous LOL.

but as far as injuries in the gym I had a torn bicep in Afghanistan but not related to the gym. It affected the gym majorly but did not happen in the gym so I’ve been pretty lucky in the 20+ years of the gym

Torn bicep playing football (blocking a pass rushers)

5 months later

Torn pec tendon
(Jumping back into where I left off without considering easing my way back in)

Now I stretch and warm up properly prior to every workout or even a day off.

Both injuries required surgery and down time.

Don’t recommend.

In college, had a poor spotter. Was squatting heavy and was struggling… came up crooked.

I was in chronic pain for a few years.

Hurt my AC joint doing very heavy “negatives” benching.

Needless to say, I stay way from those things now.

Too many to say: Result of competing mostly, training heavy and AAS use is what I would attribute many of these too.

Torn Rotators in the 90s and 2000 (doing dumbass behind the neck barbell heavy)
Torn Labrum, broken Acronium process, dislocated shoulder, broken shoulder joint (snowboarding accident. PT and healing for 12 months (prob 2005?)
Strains and tears in both hamstrings (track and field) Brusing from ass cheeks all the way to my ankles. Literally turned black.
Strained achilles tendon (doing 900lb yoke in strongman)
Torn Quad (surgery + 12 months recovery time) 2018. Ended my career in Strongman, etc. Squatting too heavy without warming up well? Previous injury
Strained quad (farmers walk 300+ lbs per hand)
Partial Tricep Tear (2017) (bench pressing 315 close grip )
Partial Pec Tear (2017) Being a dumbass and racking 405 lb deadlift onto a squat rack
Partial pec Tear (2009) opposite side. Training heavy reps with speed.
Full Tricep Tear + Surgery (2021) Rescuing a child and falling 10+ feet onto my arm (includes a fractured elbow and bone chip)
Calf Strains (multiple times) track and field
Vericocele/Hernia (2002? ) Had surgery to correct/ metal installed into body for the first time LOL
Bulging discs in back (2007) Competing in Strongman, super heavy deadlifts (700+)
Partial Bicep Tear (2008) Heavy Hammer curls (80-100 per arm)
Trap and neck injury (required weekly injections of Cortison) 2009? Strongman related
Sternum fracture (heavy weighted dips - using 3-4 45lb plates doing reps) 2005?


My quad was worse then this, but my tricep was probably the most colorful of all my tears LOL

You have been through a lot.

I am fearful of what will happen next!!

Your shoulders have to be hurting all the time? Thinking shoulder replacement in the future.

Sucks bro
