Dean Somerset & My Back Injury

Dean Somerset & My Back Injury



About 10 years ago, I hurt my back very badly while training (and doing stupid stuff) for a powerlifting show.

10 years ago I was going for a PB on sumo deadlifts at a weight of 585lbs., got it half way, and got stuck.  I kept fighting, and fighting, and fighting.  Then, all of a sudden, it felt like I got shot.

My legs went numb, I couldn’t stand, and I was in agony.

From that one lift onward, my back was never the same again.  After that, it just got worse and worse and worse.

It didn’t take long until I started to gain weight, get depressed, and had to use pain medications daily.  I was just in a horrible place.  I couldn’t workout the way I wanted.  I was limited to stupid machines, I could barely train my legs, and overall my training just sucked.

I went to see numerous chiropractors, massage therapists, back experts…you name it.  Some helped a bit.  Some were a waste of time and money.  I got an MRI and that was the icing on the cake.

1 Herniated Disc, 3 Bulging Discs, degenerative disc disease and more.  I left just wanting to quit on everything.  I was defeated.  The MRI said I was done as did 3 doctors and I felt DEFEATED.According to my chiropractor, (Dr. Janice Drove-she is awesome!) I had one of the worst backs she had ever seen.

Can you say devastated?

Then something happened.

I decided that I had to take some action.  I had to find a solution to my problem.  I was NOT going to give up; instead I was going to FIND A WAY.

I searched for back experts online who had gone through problems themselves.  One of these people I found was Dean Somerset.

I watched Dean’s Youtube videos, I read his blog, I started to do everything he said in his videos.

Then something started to happen.

I started to feel BETTER.

I could move again, I could train again, slowly I started to get strong again IN-SPITE of all my injuries.

Then last year I flew out to Edmonton for a 2-day spinal health and core conference and got to actually meet and train with Dean.

It was amazing.  I learned so much from that seminar.  Dean’s Blog, his T-Nation.com articles and his videos that have tremendously helped with not only my own training, but also my clients’ training.

This week I had the best squat workouts of my life since my injury.  Two years ago I could barely squat 135lbs.  Two days ago I squat 315 for 12 reps without ANY pain or pain medication.

If you have injuries Dean is literally a magician.

I highly recommend you check out his blog by clicking HERE.  As well, Dean has released Post Rehab Essentials 2.0 and it’s on sale until today.

I can honestly say this guy has changed my training and my life and I will continue to learn as much as I can from Dean to help my clients.

Thank you Dean, and keep up the great work my friend.
