    Holy smokes nissan, my gut hurt watching that

    God speed towards recovery brotha, youll squat again, brotha, but like many have said, use the belt to help prevent future damage.

    I didnt tear any abdominal muscles but had a small abdominal hernia from yrs back with my construction business and heavy, off kilter lifting, that grew like crazy once i began squatting/doing deads until i had to have it fixed with mesh repair; then once i could lift heavy again, blew intestine thru another portion next to that repair, they called it a surgical hernia since the mesh stitching weakened area next to it, and that where 2nd blow thru happened.

    Been good since though

    Does this make it that much more painful knowing it wasn't 552?

    I'm 280. You had me wondering whether I should even bother continuing to lift or just give up, cause I can't even squat above 500 for a single

    352 x 3 is still a strong lift for your weight. Hope your recovery goes well.

    4 weeks after injury it still hurts and I can not even come close doing a lunge or any other leg exercise. I just saw another doctor this morning who thinks it will be 6 months until the muscle and ligament are completely healed.

    Uggghhhhh

    Video link isn't working. Hope you get better soon. I have never torn a stomach muscle but have torn my left pec. The sound alone can make you nauseous. I was out for 6 months before I could do anything but took almost a year to fully recover from it. By fully recover, I mean I was able to bench again but the tear is still noticeable.

    I think I am going to set up an appointment with an orthopedist.

    Just an update...


    Since the injury I have slowly started increasing intensity of training except for squat. I still can not squat the bar without pain. I saw an orthopdist yesterday who ordered me to get an MRI Tuesday. Xrays showed the pelvis and joint to be good so it is likely a tendon tear. I hope it does not require surgery. I can't stand holding back when training.
