milos sarcev injured. read and keep in mind...
that good form is a must, and use Wea weight you can handle fellas..
we here in the bodybuilding community wish Milos Sarcev a speedy recovery in his unfortunate accident. Milos Sarcev, an incredible bodybuilder who has a record of competing in over 70 professional bodybuilding contests throughout his career, had an accident that every bodybuilder fears.
Around January 11th, Milos was training in the gym, and on the 3rd set of pushing 900 pounds on the hack squat, he felt tremendous tightness in his left leg. Milos eased up on the left leg, and put a lot of pressure on his right leg, and then felt incredible searing pain in the right leg. Milos knew right away that something was dreadfully wrong, that he probably torn his tendon. Milos said it felt like that there was a snake underneath his skin, which was moving, and rolling up.
On January 18th, Milos underwent surgery to repair the tendon. Milos went to the best doctor in California, Dr. Ting, who is Barry Bond's doctor, and a qualified sports athlete professional. When the doctor opened the right leg, the tendon looked like it had exploded, as it was completely shredded. Milos' right patella tendon was shredded and both rectus femoris and vastus intermedius were completely torn. Both of the muscles had rolled all the way up, so the surgeon had to stretch them down. In doing so, the surgeon also drilled two holes in the knee to brace it. Milos also sustained a partial tear of the abductor magnus muscle in the left leg.
It was not an easy operation for Milos. Milos insisted on a spinal anesthesia, but for some reason, Milos did not receive enough of the pain medicine. While they were drilling the holes in the knee, Milos started to feel it, and the pain was excruciating. More medicine, and rest in the hospital for three days, where Milos was still in pain, but recovering.

I heard that Milos had an incident with Synthol a couple of years back. Did anyone hear about that?

Thats gotta hurt i know his pain, i had 3 pins and 3 screws in my foot for 12 1/2 weeks. Shit sucks. He'll be back, but i can bet he'll never be squating that much again. Once u get an injury like that ur going to have pain for life. I live it and it ain't no fun.
