got one of those cheap two piece squat racks

been using for a couple years now

after warming up on a bicycle & doing a set of 10 squats at 85 lbs

did the second set (10 reps of 135 lbs) with no problem no struggle at all

as im backing up to rack my left heel hits the cheap ass squat rack leg thing

caused me to slightly stumble & it felt like it knocked the wind out of me

over the next few days up to now

Ive had an extremely sore left rib cage not under the pec muscle but below the pec if that makes sense

It feels like a fuckin cramp that wont quit

to cough or even breath its sore af

wtf did I do ?
I didn't read the replies to the thread so I am not sure if anyone mentioned this or not but you've likely dislocated a rib. Not really but it is out of place.

I've done this before.

If you haven't already, try going to a chiropractor and see if he can move it back in place. It hurts like hell but is instant relief once it's back in place.

I agree sounds like you popped out a rib. And get a monolift so you can avoid walking out your squats and keeping stupid injuries like this to a minimum :ROFLMAO:

@snake

After 5 weeks,

the injury is still tender, but will go light for starters

am now going at it head on rather than backing up

also now on leveler ground

anyone see anything to change about this form

or mount and dismount technique adjustments
