Basically that happened to me today doing a max 4. My ribs are in agony and I think I have prob broken at least one on either side. Shall go for an X-Ray tommorrow. Slim chance It could just be a bad bruising, but I can hardly breathe as it hurts to draw breath. Lying down is nearly impossible and sitting/standing isnt so hot either.
Anyway, thats ruined my training for awhile… I shall see how it goes. One thing that has really worried me is I have absolutely NO IDEA what happened except my right hand decided to loosen its grip of its own accord. I have no explanation for this and thus, I dont know how to make sure it doesnt happen again. I was actually repeating last weeks Max 4 best so its not like it was a particulary new weight either…
Has this ever happened to anyone??
Also, has anyone got any advice training - wise for a guy with (possible) broken ribs?? If it doesnt hurt then its Ok I guess? I can do without the bench for a few weeks, but Id be gutted not to Squat or Deadlift :S
