Default I find I am hurting myself

Okay so I quit lifting for a while but now am back. But I find that I am injuring myself way more than what I have ever been before. Do you feel that this is common for those who take a break from lifting and then come back and why?

Maybe you should do very light weights and work on form.

Form is usually the main reason why we injury our selves, like Jen said start light on the big 3 and video tape those is you can; and put it on youtube. This will allow us to make suggestions on what is wrong; it will also help you to see where you are struggling.

Yep; people that have done weights and then restart after a break tend to think they can jump straight back in without conditioning/prepping the body for it liek a newcomer or beginner has to, big mistake.

Sometimes when you seek advice you need to be more specific or detailed in your question or questions. When you say you are injuring yourself what do you mean and what body parts are you referring to? The reason I ask this is due to the fact that an injury can be defined in many different ways: A tear in a muscle, tendon, or joint area for example. It can be without a tear or physical injury, but you have direct and indirect pain in an area, or in some cases believing to be injured, when its simply DOMS.

Personally, I do not (pointing to the averages) believe an injury when starting over is common, but more common with ones who are more consistent with training. What I think is more common, is that when a person starts again after a period of lay off, their motivation tends to be (high), and they may tend to develop a program that is a bit too much, and they tend to be real sore within 24 to 48 hours from the last workout session. And, it is possible they "may" mistake this as an injury, when its the body reacting to activity (in this case) it normally does not do.


Have a great day today, and peace and happiness to you and your family,


Don

Maybe you are taking it too fast since you have once done it you think that you should be able to start where you left off. This is not the case. Do light weights and concentrate on what you are doing and then you will get better at it.

Slow down. You may think that you can work to where you were before but the truth of the matter is that you took a break and your body may not be able to handle now what you were once used to. Slowly build up to what you were doing.

When I pulled a muscle in my abodominal wall squatting 465 for a 3rd rep at 231lbs you know what I did right after I made sure I had no visble pops? I did my bench press with my feet on the bench because it hurt to keep my feet down. Then I did assistance work for pressing since I knew it would be a while before I squatted or deadlifted heavy again. Don't ever quit what you are doing, that is why you keep getting hurt. You don't take time to develop the proper muscles, forms or tendons.

Very time I get injured it's from not warming up correctly. As I get older this becomes much more important.
