    Injury Update

    Ok bros...worse than I even thought...but NO WORRIES!

    Grade 3 tear of the rectus femoris (quad) right down the middle of the quad

    SEVERE tear of the quad where it inserts into the hip

    Torn patella tendon


    To repair the damage, 6 months out of commission including work etc.

    I am seeing a sports ortho soon to get more insight. I CAN DEADLIFT! Squats....there is a "MYSTERY NUMBER" of weight that if I attempt it, it will retear COMPLETELY, it is still hanging on by a thread right now, and when it tears the knee will most likely let go as well. I have to stick to 135-225 forever on squats...but you know what...NO WORRIES BROS! I will do leg ext til I am blue in the face to pre exhaust my legs for squats, then do high rep squats deep. I can still do 45 degree back raise, pull throughs, leg curls.....I am STILL going to hit my goals in the DL. Adapt and overcome! You CANNOT let injuries ruin you day...always think positive. I am going to concentrate on HEAVY gms and core work. I always had a hard time balancing out heavy squats and dls, now the choice is already made for me so FORWARD MARCH!

    Good attitude, just be careful man. Not worth pushing it too hard and making things worse.

    Damn, that really sucks. Great attitude though, everything is mental and you will get past this, it will just take time.

    Good luck rehabing. It doesnt sound like these setbacks are going to keep you down for long.

    Thanks for the support bros. I am taking the hand I was dealt and working with it the best I can. You simply cannot let anything keep you down. I was devestated to know that my injuries were that severe, but I am over it and concentrating instead on a plan to work around them. Thanks again.

    Geez Brent, I am sorry to hear about the injury... I can empathize with training around injuries. I hope all goes well.

    Trust me bro...its NOTHING...just a breeze passing by. I will carry on my plan as is, now I can focus on just the PULL without having to balance heavy squats...its a BLESSING.
