Transcript of "Busted My Back Doing Squats"

  1. 1. Busted My Back Doing Squats! On December 24th, I decided to go into the gym for a workout before heading out of town for Christmas. Unfortunately, I decided to do a maximum strength squat workout. So on my 4th set and on the third 3 reps under 315 lbs, my body buckled and I fell to the floor in a freakishly awkward fashion. It was like an out-of-body experience and I couldn’t believe that it actually happened. But it did. I laid on the floor for about 10 minutes to make sure all my parts were in working order. Amazingly, no one really came to see if I was ok, including the 2 personal trainers who working out right beside me. Hey but that’s Goodlife Fitness! Anyway, I slowly made my way back to my feet and left the gym. I called my buddy Dr. Henry Candelaria, an awesome chiropractor, and he advised me as to what I should do to accelerate my recovery. Thank you Henry because as of today, just 5 days later, I feel 90% better. All I did was quickly apply ice, heat, the Dr. Ho massage pads, and kept mobile. No drugs thank you very much! But I’m not feeling 100% and I’ll probably take another week any weights. I’ll slowly get back into it using bodyweight exercises and focusing on strengthening my core. I’ll keep you posted.
