    Injury Thread

    May 19, 2017, 10:54 am

    I haven't seen one of these threads in a while. I love hearing about people's injuries and how they got past them. I've sustained plenty of injuries myself and know it can be tough to get back in the rythm which is why I love learning about other people's experiences with it. Keeps me motivated. So feel free to post about your injuries in this thread.

    As far as my own injuries:

    1) Nagging left trap, hurt it during OHPs last year and then relapsed around new years. This was a byproduct of not having proper form, that has been fixed now. Had to take 1 month off training the first time and about 1-1.5 weeks off for the relapse, overall not a terrible injury and I learned my lesson on form.

    2) Broke my nose ~2 months ago while tackling someone. Broke it in several spots and had to go under general anesthesia for about an hour for the surgery to fix it. 4 day long hospitalization, 1 week of sitting down on a couch after that and I couldn't workout for a month and lost 12-15 lbs of mostly muscle. I spent a bunch of time researching and following doctor's orders as closely as possible so I could get back in the gym asap. I also made some new routines just to pass the time and try them out when it was time to lift again. This helped keep me motivated.

    3) Wrecked my wrist doing martial arts about a week ago so I had to step off of weightlifting again and I walk around with bandages on my wrist. I was just starting to see progress again (re-gaining the muscle mass I lost to my previous injury) and BAM! I got hurt again. I guess it comes with the territory. I'm a very active person and like to do dangerous/risky stuff like martial arts and tackle sports. I'm just hoping after this one heals I can dial it back up to 11 with my training!


    So what are your injuries? What's been nagging you lately? What are you doing to change that? How have you dealt with time you're forced to take off the gym?

    I've never liked taking time off. If anything, I'll do a light week for CNS recovery but never fully off unless I'm on a trip. However, I think that taking time off is how quitting starts. That's why I try to stay engaged and make new routines/think about my gains-to-come so I can stay motivated through injuries/forced breaks.
