I posted the same a month ago. On way up from a DL I felt a tear on my lower left side lol. Quickly put the weight down and I knew something was wrong. I couldn't even disload the bar, so went straight to the clinic.

No sharp pain down towards you legs is a good sign. Otherwise that is hernia I believe. I just stopped working out for a week, and about 5 days later I was doing light workouts.

Scared me from doing DL's though. Haven't done em since, I realise they are risky if not done right.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

yep very true

i have been doing deads from the lowest pin, or 2nd lowest. Yes it is not from the ground but i am a tall ass mother fucker and i have found this to be way better and safer, yes it hurts the ego but i really dont care at this point, try it for yourself it feels great and is much easier on the lower back

Also hurting your ego is doing a weight that your body can actually handle. Yes, you might be able to knock out a few reps at 350+, but that doesn't mean you aren't potentially damaging yourself.

Halo is right though, most gym injuries are probably caused by ego

I wasn't doing any weight outside of what I normally would do. Been able to do 3 plates for awhile now. Lost focus as I was pulling and I guess my form was thrown off, then pop . Been icing on and off, taking mortin as well. Hopefully it's just a strain.

Yup the DL can be a mental exercise as much as physical. You have to pay attention the whole time you are lifting, even with light weight. That's why it's almost always a bad idea to do more than 3 reps at a time. It doesn't take much to slip concentration, and that in addition to physical exertion = potential injury

That brings up a good question: what set and rep were you guys on when you were injured?

Deadlift day yesterday... Not the best

Deadlifting does require a lot of mental effort once you go up in weight. It's your mind telling your body to stop trying to kill them. What you have to do as a lifter is tell them both to STFU and lift.

Missing a lift can hurt your motivation, so it's also important to try to avoid that.

Manage to pump out 3 reps on the old 2 plate bench (First time ever). I was using a 3 inch foam on my chest (to give me a guide) to ease the stress on the shoulders. Hurts the ego, but still feels good. lol

Finished TC 10k run in Victoria today in 44min 29 secs. My goal was 45 mins so I am happy with that. Personal best!

Even my gf beat her goal of under an hour with a time of 57 min 18 sec.

Problem with deads is a lot of people do touch and go. Their form is good for the first rep or two, but by the 3rd/4th/5th.. your brain is only focused on "lift the weight up, put it down". Try doing deadlift with resets on every rep. A little harder, but much safer and no cheating (no dropping the weight and using its bounce to get the second rep).


And kevin, stick to one thing and keep doing it and you'll see results. I've talked to you about cross fit, 5x5, and bb-ing routines in the past month

Good advice here

Anyone have any tips on working out while sick? I'm on day 2 - sore throat, body aches, etc.
Usually I wait 10 - 14 days after the cold starts before I go back and it drives me insane. At what point do head back to the gym after being sick?

I've noticed that when I reset I'm always hitting the target muscles properly than doing touch-and-go where less of the muscles are being worked.
