ugh, I think I torque'd my lower back!
accidental shrug overdose?
should have copy pasta'd the original text and altered a story about shrugs?
"Sometimes people seem to forget that there is a limit on having fun. I knew this kid for the past three years, he got me into working out and used to work at the Gym. The guy helped me a lot (Even told me about this website), and was generally an awesome person who made everyone feel bigger (both physically and emotionally). If it wasn't for him, I probably still would be afraid to go to the gym. I might not be any bigger than what I started off with, but I definitely have way more confidence and actually have something that I look forward to doing on a daily bases. Like always, I never forget people who help me, I don't think anyone should.
Getting back to the point, I noticed something on facebook and my heart literally sank. He died yesterday morning due to an accidental overdose. The guy was a Pre med major and he could literally do chem problems on the spot. Graduated a month ago. He was very well liked and never had a mean bone in his body. He was also very muscular and big for his size. But all of this did not matter, all it took was one mistake to take his life away. I know a lot of you guys like to party, but make sure you don't do something stupid, a good body might help you pull chix, but it will not make you immortal. Live carefully. Your life might not be worth much to you, but I am sure it can do something positive for the people around you."
Did BB shrugs yesterday and aggravated my mid-back. seated DB shrugs.
I tweaked my back a couple weeks ago doing this. I was dealing with a rad back pump from deads, pullups, and yates rows. I went to do behind the body BB shrugs and felt a sharp pain in my middle back that nearly paralyzed me. Fortunately, I think it was just a slight pull and I felt fine about 20min later.
Levrone told me that overtraining with shrugs can be adverse to my health or even fatal.
and while my sympathy goes out to you for your friends, the shrugs are bad dont do it approach works about as wells as teens and abstinence. The govt has been playing that game for the last 20 years, it doesnt work and is stupid. No way around it, shrugs are fun, thats why people do them. The make the food you eat taste better, they make music sound better and yes they make fucking better. The best you can do is educate people about them (like sex) so they can make more responsible choices (exactly why they should be legalized) or at least choices out of information instead of misinofrmation.
what the fuck
btw, no disrespect intended w/the off-topic comments, I'm sorry for your injury bud. On-Topic I would like to echo crackity's comments and add that it's important to point out that events like this are preventable through responsible (educated) practice, and not let them fuel the propaganda behind a 'war' that puts a lot of good people in jail and in harms way, and wastes a lot of resources that could be put to better use.
Guys with less than a 500lb total doing bb shrugs with 315+ for .05% reps
tell your senators to stop the war on shrugs
srsly...bitches be sayin they like to grab my neck during sex, but i be sayin grab my traps instead shortie ya naw wat i'm sayin?
pics of said traps.
Problem with assholes in the fitness field is that they think they know enough about shrugs they are doing to be "smart about it".. then just like any other gymrat, they lose control and end up dead. Fucking idiots, i have no sympathy for gymrats. At least some of them die before getting licensed and getting other people in their care killed.
Sucks for the people who care for them tho
