      Stretch it OP. I did something similar. Hadn't done deadlifts in a long time so my form was fucked up, it was more like a squat. Ended up pulling something or other in my lower back that extended all the way down my left leg. Was fucked for a few days but I stretched it daily, both static and dynamic stretches, plus light back work and it ended up going away

      You almost certainly fucked up something in your lumbar spine.
      Glutes don't get injured easily, and if it was just a muscular issue you wouldn't have trouble 10 years later.

      Literally this exact same thing for me. Also took 2 weeks to recover. That was like 1.5 years ago. Haven't lifted anything since then. That injury literally stopped my lifting. After 2 weeks I just fell off the wagon with fitness. Got fat as fuck and super unhealthy. Life has sucked a big one.

      Getting back at it now. Promised myself I'd never get fat again. Got like 45 lbs to go before I am an acceptable weight. Might not ever deadlift again. It just seems like such a pointless lift

    Sumo deadlifts with a band during lockdown. Would never do sumo but that’s the only way I could do deadlifts with a heavy band. Not sure what happened but I fucked my back up so bad that it was unbearable. Could barely walk. Had it literally brace myself with my hands against the wall just to get to the toilet. Took like a month to recover but luckily felt fine after

      I used to do 5x5 SL and just never stopped going up in weight on the squat. Made it up to 335 5x5 and my back was getting more and more sore since I didn't deload/address form/rest.
      After a month of having a sore lower back I went to do the DL's after and hurt myself.
      Took a couple months to recover and now I got the tingly feet.

      Don't be retarded and injuries generally have warning signs before they happen.

      Lifting is safer than basically any other sport you can do. If you want no risk dont lift and you can get the same injuries later in life from being decrepit with none of the benefits

    dislocated my shoulder doing seated DB shoulder press. basically i was on the last rep and grinding it out, and then my left arm tilted backwards and so the DB pulled my arm down the wrong way and yanked it out of the socket.

    thankfully since it was just a partial dislocation it popped back in by itself after a few seconds.

    shoulder inflammation and tendonitis that kept getting worse and worse. no idea what caused it, though it started after benching/shoulder press. got to the point that it was worsening itself with routine tasks. underwent physical therapy, x-rays, couple MRIs. nothing really worked. MRIs only showed deterioration in the joint from the inflammation. dealt with this shit for around 1.5 years where my lifting was essentially on pause. insurance made me waste my time with random physical therapy and shit. struggled to even get my arm back behind my head to do squats. stopped lifting entirely for months to see if inaction would cause the inflammation to go down. didn't work. physical therapy did nothing either.

    eventually they suggested surgery (which I wanted to avoid) despite no signs of impingement. got a second opinion from another orthopedic surgeon. solution was simply getting a cortisone injection in my shoulder. I only got a half dose. fixed everything. never had an issue in my shoulder since, but my shoulder still makes a clicking sound (crepitus) from the deterioration from the past inflammation. experience makes me hyper-wary of any inflammation or crepitus i hear in other joints now. was not cheap to fix.

    Heavy Impingement in my right shoulder.

    Honestly surprised i haven't heard about this more on this board. Mainly caused during Incline Bench and OHP. Top of the back bicep muscle compensating when it shouldnt be (poor posture and bad habits causing this even when i was aligning my posture properly).

    Eventually caused consistent pain and a 'rolling' effect when i did those lifts. Had to go to physiotherapy before it got worse. Basically had to restart those lifts from zero. Fucking pain in the ass.

    Also all the deadlifts posts in here are why I will never try 1RM deadlift. Just consistently and safely do slow manageable reps/sets

    Also daily reminder to fix your anterior/posterior tilt if you have it, and to also fix your posture. Daily.

        Hard to give links/resources since nothing compares to being physically shown/forced to do the right posture/mechanical movement by an expert but:

        Yes, facepulls help, back work helps. Scapula squeezes, resistance band exercises, lat pushdowns, and simple mechanical motions: (arms outstretched in front of you, thumbs pointed upwards, shoulders seated properly and then lifting your hands above your head and back down, similar with hands at your sides with no upper bicep assistance.)

        Also anything that tests your internal rotation. See pic related. You can also find similar shit on google by simply searching impingment https://www.wkona.net/exercises-for-shoulder-impingement-syndrome-orthopaedic-neurosurgical-surgeon-bowling-green-south-central-kentucky.html

    Subluxated my shoulder doing pull ups, I think my connective tissue there is shit because it's happened to my right shoulder probably upwards of 10 times since then and a number in the left as well. Usually doesn't impede me too much but if it happens especially bad the affected arm will be pretty useless for a few days. Each time it happens I lose a little more range of motion in the affected shoulder as well which is pretty annoying

    Something something left shoulder is permanently fucked since my lifting/parkour days in high-school.
    I don't even know how or why (no particular pain stands in mind), or in which way, but it never healed and it no longer works normally. It's been 12-15ish years since and it's still fucked. There are certain things and lifts that I'll never be able to do. Those stealth injuries are the worst. You don't even know when you got them or how, you just wake up one morning incapable of ever functioning normally.

    I started lifting in March and my right knee has been hurting since April from squats. I've had my form checked 8 times since then by different trainers to make sure my squat form is correct, and yet, my knee still hurts. I probably should go to the doctor.

    Tricep tendinitis. I was overhead pressing with a barbell doing a heavy 1 rep max (165lbs) and when I lowered back to the starting position and went to rack it I accidentally got sloppy and lowered my right elbow to much and felt a sharp pain in my elbow. I was so fucking determined to hit 3pl8 bench and 2pl8 ohp that I ignored it. Went back into the gym 3 days later to bench and ohp again, my elbow never quite felt right but it didn’t hurt, there was just a weird tingle. I decided to “man it out” and ignore, thinking it’ll go away. Fast forward a month and a half and I’m doing warmup on bench press and finally my elbow/Tricep/tendon just gave up and I couldn’t press. I couldn’t do as much as a single push-up without severe pain, I couldn’t even do pull-ups or hold a dumbbell over 30lbs without feeling intense pain. I was devastated because I was smashing PRs every week. It was a humbling experience tho. It humbled me good. I will never not listen to my body again. I haven’t been able to properly bench or press or do any pushing movements since the start of April. Just within the last 2 weeks I’ve started very slowly and lightly doing small sets of bench and press with low reps just to get the feel for it. Luckily I can do DB flies and cable flies without feeling any pain so I’ve just been doing a bunch of flies for the last 2 months

    I dont even know what happened but when i was doing pullups i heard some strange crack and then instantly felt huge pain in my right delt and lat. After that my whole back started to lean to the right and my whole right side is much lower than left. I didnt gave a fuck and next day i went straight to the gym. I couldnt do a single pull up for two months, right now im back at 20kg 5x5
