Okay, so this happened to me last week.
I just finished my biology lecture and was heading to the gym. It was monday so that means it was quads day, which meant squats and oh boy I love squats. So, I’m all pumped to go to the gym. I finally get to the gym and I start off with some warm up sets and stuff.
Do a warm up set with 135. Goes fine.
Do a warm upset with 225. Goes fine.
I load the bar to do a warm up set with 275. I get under the bar and it feels just fine. I lower myself all the way down and at the bottom, I feel my boxers tear right down the middle. I thought to myself maybe I was imagining it and so I do another rep and this time I feel it rip even more…I checked the mirror and made sure that at least my sweatpants didn’t rip.
Anyways, this has never happened to me before while squatting (or any other exercise). I had the same depth as always and it was not as if I had never squatted 275 before so I honestly don’t know why it ripped. So has this experience or anything similar happened to anyone else?
