Lifting/workout injuries this year so far (listed in descending order of severity):
- Pulled muscle in my lower left back.
- Micro tear in my tricep in my right arm.
- Pain in the region of my right knee.
- Sprained finger.
- Bruise on nose. This was a result of doing what I call a “jump clap push up”: it’s a clap push up in which you also lift your entire body up while you’re clapping, so your feet are lifted off the ground when you clap. I can typically do these without any problem, but because of injury #2 in this list I fell and my nose hit the ground. Hard. This happened before I knew that I had torn my tricep; I was trying to see if my arm had healed. Turns out it hadn’t.
