    Snapped my chit, possible (likely) muscle tear on the last lower attachment

    It was a hot day, I was tired and angry and the gym had got rid of its shrug bar and replaced it with a retarded multi handle version

    I should have called it a day when 405 felt unbalanced because of the ridiculous rolling handles and general awful design, but I went for 495 and on the 3rd rep felt something give in my back

    3 days later its swollen and hurts like fk, had an MRI today so hopefully it's just a mild moderate grade 2 tear and not pulled fully off the attachment

    Apparently you need a break from lifting while under massive job stress, who would have thought

    If only I'd driven to the other local gym and done the right damn workout

    I did have a panic attack when I saw the deformation on the muscle, but thankfully have some older shirtless photos that show the same thing, I guess at some point in the last 20 years I managed to tear my lower lat attachment already

    Why did you name yourself Halfway? Should be AllTheWay.

    Sorry about your injury. So, what can you do about these injuries? Rest or back off?

    Sorry to read this. You know you made a mistake. I have altered my training radically to avoid injury, yet stay in the game. It takes alot of focus; release of ego; and realistic thinking. I wish you the best

    It was 100% my own fault, the only real deads I've done for years are high rep RDL with 315 max

    Muscle tears cant be treated so the MRI is really for my own peace of mind, hopefully it's a grade 1/2 and not a game changer

    Gonna take a week or so off and start back up very gently on unaffected body parts, I'm doing 70+ hour weeks and the day I snapped myself my boss had sent me something to fix on the weekend, I got into work and realized instantly it was someone else's issue so went home pissed and stopped at the gym on the way

    I felt tight and achey warming up, should have been a red light to go home or just do some cables

    I'm sticking to my high rep workouts for everything from from now on

    I guess its good that theres no bruising 2 days later but the MRI tech said "I can defintely see which part we're scanning" when he saw the swelling

    That's my strategy nowadays. I'm super paranoid of injuries now and I know I can get just as an effective training response from high reps.

    I hope you don't skip a beat from this new setback.

    Good luck, hope it goes well
    Let us know if the MRI result is Good/bad
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.
    Diet restarted, target 69.x Kg, progress poor so far :(
    Squat, Press, Squat, Press, occasionally some DL or other things too

    MRI says lat and erector both stained, not torn at least. The ortho says it's hard to tell exactly how tlbad the strain is from the images but thinks it should recover ok.

    I'm sticking with 15 reps minimum for free weights, 20 reps minimum for machines from now on. (Free weights a little lower because the stabilizers fatigue quicker than with a hammer or cable machine)

    I assume you're doing the same after your injuries too :/

    I was never a freak in the gym like you and Half, but not bad for my BW. But, I am all about preservation and Periodization for change ups. And, no more deads. I do rack pulls below the knees and I use straps because I am scared of bicep tears.

    Hell yeah! I respect the hell out of heavy lifting and people who do it, but it's just not in the cards for me anymore. If that makes me a pu$$y, I'm cool with that.

    You lift some heavy ass weights; don't sell yourself short. I hear ya on the deadlift, I figure that would be my next tear if I didn't back off.
