Just going over the really, really dumb injuries I ever got, not necessarily avoidable ones, like picking at my calluses until I skin my palm or putting too much weight on the bar.
I recently got a very stupid “injury”. I was doing some dynamic stretches (standing reverse hypers) and hit the shit out of my calf on one of the squat rack pegs, lateral head. So I essentially Charlie horsed myself and it hurt like a bitch.
This was two weeks ago and now I can’t go into ankle dorsiflexion without pain which means I can’t squat without my calf feeling like it’s going to tear. Funny thing is that there’s no bruise, but there’s a huge bump at the point of impact.
This is actually really frustrating because it puts a huge dent in my training and its such a fucking dumbass injury, I mean I can accept a slipped disc during a max attempt or a pulled hamstring or something, but “I hit myself and it hurts” is just sad. And pathetic.
Anyone here have any dumb injuries they ever got?
