    Post Your Injuries

    I hear a lot about injuries, and I'm scared ****less when I squat by myself at home with no safety rack things at the bottom.

    And exactly how common are injuries among you guys? Seems like a lot of you guys have messed up your back or something.

    Anyways, so far I'm injury free, except for a slight wrist pain I used to have when I was cleaning, but I had wrong form. I corrected that.
    I am cool beyond all natural explanation.

    Last few years: Finger, bicep, shins, hips, hams, shoulder.

    From, respectfully: climbing, climbing, running, soccer, soccer, sleeping.

    Lifting: DOMS

    Lifing is safe if you know what you can handle and ALWAYS keep good form.

    I would get some spotting bars for those squats bro' = you dont want to be driven into the ground by too much weight.

    I hate injuring myself in my sleep. If this were a fair world, it'd never happen!

    Also, I'd never squat without pins. Unless I had a great spotter on either side.

    Upper-Middle back muscle strain. Too much volume and too little rest. Took about 3 months to heal. No upperbody lifting during that time, and limited lower body lifting.

    I personally feel the more (time wise and weight) that I lift, the less likely injury is because your body is stronger and better able to cope, but only if form, concentration and careful movements (i.e. not snatching or grabbing a weight up, unless thats what your training for)

    A sprained ankle 10 years ago.

    I've never injured myself weightlifting and I don't plan to, safety is in my top priority list.

    how does this hamper your training??

    for me -- broken everything below my right knee from separate sports occassions; fractured left wrist (which makes basically ALL curls a nightmare to this day); torn hamstring; strained knee ligament; and the ubiquitous, omnipresent, debilitating back pain that makes pain-free days a noteworthy event.
