I was in a car accident last week, someone slammed into me from behind while i was stopped at a stop sign. besides the fact that i had made the switch from honda to lexus about two months ago, and that i had just left the gym (which means the creatine that i had just shaken up and taken the top off of went all over my interior), and that my post workout meal would then be delayed about 2 hours…yea, besides all of that to piss me off, my body feels like shit.
day of, i was pissed, needed a new bumper, and a creatine bomb exploded in my car. now, i just feel “bad”. the day after was supposed to be my back day, but my lower/mid back was strangely sore, and the backsides of my shoulders, kinda deep into the rear delts (rotator cuffs!?)…so, i did what i thought was the smart thing and just took the day off from the gym.
the next day, felt the same, so i did the same…well its now 4 days after the accident, and i figured i would give the gym a go, because my lower back, which was the most sore, was feeling better.
i thought maybe it would be a good idea to do a HIT style structure, seeing as i missed a few days, and really just wanted to get in and get the whole body back working and moving. i was using moderately heavy weights, but not going to failure, probably going a couple reps from failure on everything.
BAM! start feeling like shit
t-bar row old school with the bar shoved into a corner
BAM! feel like shit
OH dumbell press
THATS it! going home!
my left hip muscles tightened up on me during the OH’s, and shoulder joints and elbow joints started feeling like shit. now in general i just feel like shit, felt like ive gotten my ass kicked/ hit by a truck. this sucks! and its depressing.
im too impatient to sit in an emergency room all day, so im taking some advil or such and hitting the bed, in hopes that ill at least not feel like crying from the frustration when i wake up. i cant stand this, i love lifting, and even though my body isnt where id like it to be, i live for the persuit…it just sucks. i plan on taking today and tomorrow to rest as well as i can, monday if im still feeling like shit im going to see the doc.
Just wanted to post because of how bad emotionally and physically this is making me feel, and im sure others have been in similar situations.
