Long story short, the other night a couple of guys 10-15 years younger than me were (for no reason other than the fact that it was there) trying to lift a slab of stone. 3 of them together couldn’t even budge it. I had a few beers in me, so I grabbed the thing, deadlifted one end of it, and gently put it back down. On my own damn finger.
Result: A few minutes later I passed out from system shock, and x-rays show a broken index finger. I’m so proud of myself.
The timing is really bad, as I was about to start training with a couple of powerlifters I know - fall and winter should be heavy lifting and good eating, right?
Any input on how I should train for the next 3-4 weeks? I see squats and hiking in my future… Probably some one handed lifts as well.
