    Today was a Back/Bi day, I had 2 excersizes done, todays lift started out awesome! I have never done Deadlifts before and I have been reading about them off F&N so much so i decided to try them. I have always been a little scared of trying them out just because I was afraid my form would be shitty and I would hurt myself...

    Well i loaded a 35 on each side just to get a feel for things, Things felt good after the first set so I loaded on the 45's. I did 2 sets and I think I was maybe using my back a bit to much. Anyway after the 2nd set I started feeling a dull pain which felt like it was underneath my right shoulder blade (like towards the bottom of the shoulder blade). And I was thinking to myself I probably shouldnt try this last set, cause the pain was bugging me. But I said fuck it, and bent my knees for the bar, gripped it, and as I started to do the DL I felt a hard POP right in bottom of the shoulder blade... OUCH! After that I couldnt even bend down the pain hurt so bad. So here I am now typing this and I can barely lift my arms :wtc:

    things have been so great lately too, I just started my one month bulk and I dont wanna stop :hs:
    I'm guessing I pulled a muscle in my back pretty severly..

    shit...definitely not good. Going to the doctor might not be a bad idea, make sure to take it easy.

    One thing to keep in mind when lifting is listen to your body, especialy when doing large amounts of weight.

    When I go to do a set if I start feeling pain half way through, I stop. I'm not talking :'( its to heavy pain, I'm talking something doesn't feel right, then I stop that exersice until the next time it's on the agenda to work out. Again, listen to your body, injuring yourself isn't going to get you big ;)

    I wish I would have listened to my body :wtc:

    Update: I went to the doctor and found out I had a ligament tear in my Rhomboid. I wont be able to lift for a solid month :sadwavey:
