    does anyone else get injured a lot, mostly in stupid ways?

    This week I:
    re-injured a recurring pec injury at work
    strained my glute while setting down my water bottle (seriously)
    strained my groin, don't know how

    In the past year I:
    strained the medial longitudinal arch in my left foot, last september, still has not healed
    pulled my left hammy
    heavily strained both quads
    moderately strained my groin/adductor

    yep... my life, lol

    • Pulled quad (was significant during track season - had to see a painful massage therapist)
    • Broken right tibia at tibial plateau (2 titanium screws currently in there)
    • fractured left ankle

    I once had a terrible shoulder injury (biceps tendon) caused by sleeping on it wrong.

    damn, that's scary that it's even possible to do something like that. mine was much more comical than terrible, but this reminds me of the time i was icing my left knee but i got to sitting in a weird position while doing so and as a result my right knee swelled up and hurt like a ***** for the next 3-4 weeks

    I normally get hurt from being at less than 100%, lack of sleep plus sparring at a different gym, and sparring hard at another gym. I can't remember the last time I was feeling good before a sparring day, my timing seems to be getting worse.

    Only injury I've had while lifting is a pec strain, that healed, and I re-injured it after squat day by putting on my shorts after getting out of the shower somehow...now every time I put on pants/shorts whatever...I'm very cautious.

    Is there a smart way to injure yourself?

    I have many... too many to share.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    I actually pride myself on not being injured when I should have been. Especially in my BJJ class some guys fell on top of my leg and made it bend in a weird way and everyone was screaming "watch out!". Nothing happened though. Many more examples, I do get injuries from overtraining all the time. BJJ,weight lifting and sprints for cardio takes a lot out of me.
