Where did that come from? :lol:

I like how when I get an injury it takes me weeks to get back to work sets. When you get an injury you're like "injuries are for pussies" and just get on with it.

Haha! I do like to just get on with things. That's the nice thing about having a bit of experience under the bar, you know when to power through the minor discomfort without getting hurt :)

Crashed my bike today and sprained my right wrist. Hit a patch of glazed frost that was hidden under the snow and went down hard on my right wrist. It's pretty swollen and sore as hell, so I'm probably not gonna be lifting anything for a week or so. Might go to the gym and do some zercher squat though..

Someone else injured! Just add you onto the list. There's about 4 people who's logs I read that are injured just now/recently. Then there's me as well, of course.

Good luck with the zercher squats, I'm sure your forearms will love you :lol:

Thanks Rob :D It's does feel pretty badass carrying heavy weights in your elbow crease.

They didn't feel all that heavy, but I wasn't really comfortable with the technique, so I just played it safe :)

I didn't spot the lift, I just unracked it and did the lift :)

My wrist is still really sore and I'm probably gonna need another week before I can handle any heavy weight safely :x
