All my life I’ve been good about lifting weight safely.
I didn’t the other day.
I was bench pressing, and the bar slipped out of my hand and landed on my chest.
Luckily I wasn’t at full lockout/extension.
But it still hurt like hell!
I don’t have a broken rib. I think it’s just a deep tissue bruise. I’ll be fine. 3 weeks of resting it will help.
In the grand scheme of things, that’s not that long. But long enough to keep me from lifting weight the way I want. Especially on the bench press.
Got to let it heal if I want to. It’s feeing better. It has been.
So that’s a good sign!
