Torn Pec


#1

I was looking at Tony Freeman who I think is a pretty darn good and I was thinking about how the judges can get passed the torn chest muscle? I'm wondering how these guys don't get surgery right away when appearance is everything?

its not that bad a tear he tore it in 1995 before the nationals and got it fixed mid 2000


#3

looks like he is giving a judge a death stare…maybe that’s it

Didn’t Chris Dickerson winning the Olympia after he tore his pec? Didn’t seem to hurt him.

Yates won the Olympia with a torn bicep.

It’s not unheard of for a bodybuilder to still win a contest when not perfectly symmetrical (whether this is due to injury or natural asymmetry).
