  • Tore my pec...

    Last saturday I competed in the 2nd Annual Team Metro Push/Pull. On my final bench attempt I tore my right pec. MRI showed a clean tear across the tendon and surgery is scheduled for tuesday morning.

    In retrospect I did SEVERAL things contributing to the injury:
    1- 4 days before the meet i was 212lbs but signed up to lift in the 198's,the day of the weigh-in i was 207lbs at 7pm i made the 198 weigh-in. I had my last meal thursday night and didnt eat or drink all day friday until after the weigh-in. I also made use of steam rooms and saunas to dehydrate the sh** out of my self.
    2-i took off about 3 months from any kind of exercise and started training again in May. Once i started eating and training again my body just soaked it up and i gained a ton of size/strength real fast....i didnt give myself any time to consolidate the gains.
    3-i decided to do the meet 4 weeks before it was scheduled....

    i realize that the rehab from pec repair and is long and arduous. I feel bad for the inconvenience it will put my family thru..including a trip the big island we had scheduled for next wednesday-saturday. we cancelled.

                  Hang in there man. Since December of '09 I've had 3 shoulder surgeries due to tears, the last this past Feb. I am now back to hitting it consistent and hard at the gym. Just be patient and follow the rehab plan.

                    Sorry to hear that man.. Get that doc to prescribe some gh for a speedier recovery. I've actually had quite a few guys coming in my store lately telling me that their doctor has given them a script for GH post surgery.

                        Hope for a speedy recovery and more than likely it was also contributed to by overuse also. Get well my friend

                          You tore your pec, but, do I read that correctly in your signature? You won your class? 2011-USPL Metro 1st Raw 198

                          Sorry to hear about the tear, T. Hope the surgery goes well and you can move on to recovering quickly.
