    IFBB Pro Zack Khan Injured

    He is the humungous guy in the Hemo Rage advertisements....

    Zack Khan underwent surgery to repair two detached tendons in both knees
    June 10, 2010 FLEXONLINE.COM

    Rookie IFBB Pro League athlete Zack Khan was forced to postpone his debut once already this year. Now, Khan may have to push that debut further back than the FLEX Pro in February 2011.

    Khan underwent surgery today, two days after completely detaching the tendons above his left and right knees. Khan suffered the injury while hack squatting. He was back in the gym just 10 days after undergoing surgery for a minor hernia, which was the reason Khan pushed his pro debut from the Tampa Pro Bodybuilding Weekly Championships on July 17 to the FLEX Pro on February 26, 2011.

    "It was the first time Zack had trained legs in about eight weeks, actually," Khan's trainer/nutritionist Neil Hill said. "He had suffered a very small tear in his left hamstring about eight weeks ago. So all he had done the last couple weeks were some very light extensions."

    We spoke with Khan before his surgery and received an e-mail from Hill informing us that the surgery was a success.

    "I'm just looking forward to getting the operation out of the way, then I'll start thinking about walking again and everything," Khan said yesterday. "I'm positive, I've spoken to doctors who said I'd be up and walking within six to eight weeks.

    "This is just another obstacle. I've had many in my life and gotten through them all, so this is nothing. I'll be back soon."

    The dude lifts so heavy I'm not surprised. Someone posted a video here of him pressing. I said look at his bicep shaking, looks like that thing is about to pop off.

    Bummer. Was interested to see how he would do on the pro stage, but will have to wait.

    afraid this doesn't bode well for big Zack, inuries like this so early on in his pro career could spell a short lived career at the pro ranks.

    i dont mean to sound ignorant but could that happen to a natty person just pushing really hard, or is the pressure to pop both tendons on a hack squat only possible with aas and the increased muscle development possible with it that does not allow your tendons to keep up with your muscle growth.

    I'd like to see this guy do well. Every era needs a mass freak. With Coleman's best days over, its up to him.

    The hack squat can be a dangerous movement, especially if you have your feet low on the platform. The probability of being injured can be increased if someone is pushing themselves hard, lifting with poor technique, and/or has advanced strength levels.

    just walking upstairs at 350 pounds probably doesn't help matters for Zack either.
