Last week, I was doing HIT, and I vowed to never do weighted dips again b/c thats what caused my torn pec..Which I still havent, but Im that stoooopid to try decline bench.
So I did..all was well til we got to 315, and on the 10th rep I felt a twinge..Yes my life once again ran before my eyes and I started a big sweat as I did previously a year ago..
So i racked the weight, and left..
So far there is a lil bruising and Im icin the hell out of it...
Yes Im scared to find out what really happend, Im hopin for it to be scar tissue just movin around..Keep yer fingers crossed !!!!
I have to see the Doc and see whats up !!!!
But I will be takin almost another week off unfortunately to let it heal. And we will go from there..
When I had surgery, I tried doin other stuff while I healed and it just hindered my recovery..
So now Im pissed !!!

Just venting folks.....

Venting is often a good thing Gator, let her rip!

Keep my fingers crosse and whisper a little prayer that you find out it is just scar tissue ... keep the faith:)

I'll keep my fingers crossed that this injury isn't serious. But see your doctor and take it easy during recovery. The last thing you want to do is prolong an injury. Maybe now is the time for that Cancun vacation - sitting on the beach with a tropical drink isn't likely to cause further injury :)

Sorry Gator! Rest up & get it checked out if it keeps hurting! Hope you feel better soon! The lying on the beach sipping frozen drinks thing sounds good to me. :)

sorry to hear about it .. injuries do suck .. I hurt my back doing deads two weeks ago .. I thought i was in serious trouble .. had trouble due to work committments in resting but once i finally did, it got better .. I even went skiing last week and made it back to the gym this morning .. I did my shoulder workout but stayed low in the weights .. been doing HIT myself for a bit but now am going to lighten up for the next 6 - 8 weeks to make sure i'm healed .. also gonna stay away from deads, squats and some bb rows (breaks my heart but i want to heal first) .. so hang in there and good luck ... layoffs due to injury really suck !

315 is a helluva lotta weight. Your only as strong as your weakest link. Muscles are willing but the connective tissue isn't. Keep the ice up and see the Doc.

Best of luck,

Gator,

You sound as pissed as I am. Tell you what, you do my leg workouts for me and I'll do your upper body workouts for you...or I'll do my best anyway. Then when we get a few months down the track, we'll take photo's of your bottom half and my top half and we'll cut and paste em onto eachother and have a laugh! LMAO!!!!! Well we gotta see the funny side of it somehow huh?!?!

Take care,

Man, that's bad news. Hopefully the doc will say it's not as bad as it sounds. But geez! 315 lbs.? You must be a giant too.

You'd be hurting my feelings more if it were the football team. I really like them.

The bus driver could have just saved gas money altogether & not brought them as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah, maybe we'll win at that sport this year. It's always a "wait and see if miracles happen" kind of thing for us. Here's a present for you:
