I'm pretty sure people have come back from quad tears just as they've come back from bicep and pec tears. Your body won't ever really be the same but its doable for most cases I think.

Yea, it happens. Kind of odd for it to be a quad vs a hammie.
Travis posted a list of Louie Simmons's injuries and they put this one to shame. The muscle will get reattached through healing and/or surgery, and if he wants he will make a come back.
I know of a couple Highland Gamers that this has happened to. It just takes time and rehab and that guy will be back.
Uh, no.something to keep in mind next time when Im lifting heavy.
Not going to end a career, not something to think about next time.

I have torn a quad coming out of the hole in a meet with a squat 2 years ago. It was partial tear but things like that happen. Hell 5 years ago I herniated a disc in my back and was told I would never be able to lift heavy weights again and couldnt walk for 2 days. Your body will recover quickly but your mind is what takes a while to get over it. I was back to squatting 4 weeks after the incident but it took me a year or so to get it out of my head. Now I dont even worry about it. Injuries are part of the sport you push hard enough sooner or later there going to happen. Look at Marc Bartley. he had one of the worst quad tears ever. look for him to put up a huge total very soon. he took a year or so off lost some weight but the guy is still insanely strong. Best advice I can ever give on injuries is to not worry about them trying to be wuss and avoid one is the easiest way to get one.
That took a little time, but within a year I had hit pr's in all the lifts. I took 4 months off completely from the gym and when I went back I did a ton of pull throughs. What helped me the most was learning to listen to my body. I also read a ton of the westside articles in my down time. I htought if Louie could come back form all the **** that happened to him then so could I.
