    How do these happen? Bad form or too much weight?

    Unhappy

    Thanks for the replies guys. Bruising starting to come out today. Not as bad as some of the photos (yet). I live in Weipa, a tiny mining town on Cape York so very limited medical facilities but flying into Brisbane Friday (Floods permitting) and will get it scanned.

    Just a side note. Bad form is what caused the injury. I have a small shoulder injury on my left and at the bottom of the movement, it hurts so I am thinking that I was compensating with my right side which is where I got the tear.

    Stupid but I just love to lift so now and paying the price. Lesson learnt, don't life heavy when injured.

    Injuries will mainly occur through wear and tear. Bad form wont usually have you tearing pecs unless your a moron and allowing the weight to free fall.

    Athletes tear muscles constantly, its called pushing the boundaries

    Are you saying injuries are inevitable as the weights get heavy, Markos?

    Oh not at all. Torn muscles are not normal.

    But I doubt any advanced powerlifter can claim to have never suffered an injury.

    Adam Coe used perfect form, he suffered a career ending injury, same goes for Ed Coan etc

    Most still have this thought that anyone that ever lifts a weight in poor form will get injured and anyone with perfect form is safe.

    Its nonsense. Of all the lifters I've had at PTC, Nick gets the most injuries, yet he stretches, warms up, good form, great diet.

    His problem was he got strong, nearing in on a 500lb squat and pulling over 600lbs, the body is not designed for that.

    Doctors are just plumbers for the human body, even worse, at least a plumber knows how to fix all the problems he gets handed with. Doctors just play trial and error.

    Cheers guys. What about the recovery time and the chances of a full recovery.

    Wardy, I tore my pec benching 150kg in 1996, at the time my PB was 165kg.

    I didnt lift again until 2003, that was for a brief 3 month period to fix my back.

    In 2007 I benched 150kg with my still severed pec. I was 45yo and 90kg

    The video is somewhere on youtube

    The most problems I get with it now is actually deadlifting, it puts more tension on the pec than benching.

    Whilst I never benched 165kg again, I'd say 150kg at 45 is close enough to full recovery

    I should add mine tore off the bone, it wasnt simply a tear in the muscle. I have a hole there now
