    F%CK...spring shows may be out!!!

    I am so dissapointed right now guys and gals. Everything was right on target for me to compete in a May 31 and June 7 show...that is, until yesterday!

    I was having a brilliant leg workout and then it happened. On my second set of stiff leg deadlifts (I already did quads at this point) I was cruising along with 315 lbs, intending on 12-15 reps. On rep 6 or 7 my left hamstring went POP! It was so loud that someone about 15 feet away heard it loud and clear.

    I dropped the weight and curled into a little ball on the ground. I layed there sick to my stomach at the thought of what just happened...the pain didn't even register yet...but my GOD, it did about 30 minutes later!!

    I have to go for an MRI, but the way it feels and the noise it made indicates a tear...how bad is the question.

    Either way, my early contest plans look like they are all f#cked up. I am very depresses about this.

    Just had to share...

    Thanks everyone for your concern...it really is appreciated. Right now I will continue to train my upper body and will stay on my diet. Cardio and legs are out for now, so I will make my diet even tighter. There are a couple of pro qualifiers later in the year...AND I WILL BE ONSTAGE FOR THEM.

    I'm just really upset this happened and need to just get my head back on straight and work through it.

    Thanks again guys...

    Thanks kidda. The MRI shows exactly what I thought it would! A severe tear of the semitendenosis muscle of my left hamstring. It is really starting to bruise now, and looks nasty. I predict that I will be unable to train my legs hard for about 6-8 weeks. This really really sucks, but I will use this time to work harder on my upper body weakpoints and I will continue a stringent diet. My goal now is the NATURALMANIA PRO QUALIFIER this September.

    Sorry to hear this gopro, injuries suck especially at that magnitude.

    What do you contribute this to? Too much weight, not enough of a warm-up, or just bad luck?
