Oh f**k! Unhappy
Just watched the livestream where it appears to have happened. I'm amazed that Tom didn't react to it at all. It's like he didn't even notice, although watching his bicep shoot upwards mid lift makes it look almost certainly like a detachment. bo***cks.


I didn't notice! I felt a bit of a ping and then the bar came out of my hand and I was a bit upset that the bar came out of my hand rather than worrying about why it had come out of my hand, and then I noticed my bicep wasn't there anymore.

Confirmed at hospital anyway, complete detachment of the tendon from the radius.

Thanks for the support guys!

Firstly Tom, sorry to hear you got injured, your lifts were immense as always!

Secondly, do you have any idea of rehab time? Is a complete detachment better than partial for surgery purposes etc?

Fingers crossed for a smooth and speedy return sir.

It's a pity about the setback. I have been following your training cycle and I know how strong you have become. I have said it a hundred times, you're a hell of a lifter and definitely world class.

Heal up and come back even stronger!! For selfish reasons, I will miss watching your freaky lifting videos.

Good luck!

was such a pisser to see that happen, but tendons can be reattached and you'll be back stronger than ever.
