    I know the feeling for sure. To go from highly active and competitive to ruptured, literally, so bad so that I couldn't wipe my own butt on the toilet and had to ask my husband for assistance. Humiliating. I empathise with anyone that has an injury that can't get out and do the things they want to do, but experience has shown for me, if I am too impatient, then it can often make things worse Chin up, hope things improve real quick. Are you taking any anti-inflammatories and icing it? How old is the injury?

    It is nothing major. Certainly nothing that compares to having titanium inserted into your spine! I was squatting Monday and didn't get my belt placed low enough on my short torso (what can I say, I'm short!). On about the second or third rep at 305 my Lever belt dug up under my rib cage. That was not a very fun experience. I finished the set, slapped 345 on the bar, got the belt in the right place, and hit 5 more reps. My rib cage, on the right side, is very sore. Hurts to breath, cough, or laugh. Luckily I don't have a cold, am a grouchy old cuss, so I don't laugh, but can't do much about breathing. A few more days and I'll be right as rain!

    I'm working at home today. I thought I would get a workout in just before lunch. I'm still hoping to hit deadlifts tonight. We'll see how it goes. Might have to do all my lifting sans belt.

    OffRoad - wait until after she feeds me, otherwise I'll starve!

    Deadlifts
    165 x 5
    205 x 5
    245 x 3
    285 x 3
    325 x 3
    365 x 5 - PR Added belt. Hit the first rep, reset, knocked out 4 more. Not my best form, my shoulders were definitely rounding, but I got 'em up. Deadlifts are still my most problematic lift.

    Ab Pulldowns
    70 x 20 x 5

    BW = 178.4 lbs

    Ribs hurt. Adding the belt didn't feel good, but I got it done. Nothings broke, just bruised.

    Yep - that is why I took a nap between morning and evening workouts.

    Nope, I keep aggravating it. My wife says it is what I'm good at - being aggravating. Walked for 3 miles (brisk pace of 12 minutes per mile) up in the mountains Saturday. I was surprised at how much that bothered me. Still sore and still healing. Have bench tonight and squats Wednesday. A little worried about squats...

    A walk in the hills is good medicine. Good luck on the bench, I hope the ribs take it.

    I feel like someone went after me with an axe handle. Trimming horses, getting feed, covering the round bales (don't understand that, but the wife wants it done), feeding, etc., etc. Overdid it. Wish I had some Vicodin and beer.

    Its official, ribs are busted. Not sure where that puts my training. I know I'm way too impatient to wait a month or two..

    Oh S%#! that's bad. Sorry to hear that. Did you have an x-ray? Ask the Dr for some good meds. I get mine in bulk, 20 packs at a time!

    They are cracked, which means they aren't moving around. If you're gonna have broken ribs, it is the way to go. I'm gonna go with motrin before I try anything stronger. I've been dealing with it up to now and doing okay. It just hurts to laugh, cough, move, sleep, or damned near anything else. Still contemplating a bench workout before the end of the week. I know, I'm not too bright.

    On a side not, tomorrow is my 15th anniversary! Can't believe any woman could put up with me for that long. My wife, she is a saint!

    Happy Aniversary. 15 years is a BIG accomplishment these days. I've been married to the same wonderful woman for 23 years now. I've been married half my life

    The ribs suck. But do yourself a favor and let them heal for a while. Can you squat? May be time for a squat specialization routine

    Squatting hurts worse than bench pressing. LOL I'm not sure what I'm capable of at the moment. I am going to see what works and doesn't work Friday. I've entered the strongest of the weak online competition and it is looking like I'll be weakest of the weak. LOL

    Remember this? Doh! Rest up Tim! It's sure to heal quicker this way even if you don't want to, you might not have any choice if all these exercises are hurting. And Happy Anniversary mate! Nice work

    I was wrong... wife was right as confirmed by the little guys in the lab coats with stethoscopes. I believe I was going with the wishful thinking diagnosis.

    It will be three weeks on Monday. The rib feels much better. Now if feels sore and 'out of place.' I can move without much in the way of pain. I believe I'll try some light lifting next week and see how it goes. If that doesn't work, then I'll give it another week. Thanks for asking!
