Bodybuilder Ryan Crowley tore his chest muscle off the bone when he tried to lift 220 kilos on an incline bench press.
The 23-year-old published a video of the incident on social media and through another post he expressed his gratitude towards those who helped him during this tough period.
“An incredible Thank you so much to everyone who has been involved and supported me in this terrible time, it’s been extremely devastating, painful and very mentally and physically impossible, but I’m keeping as strong and positive as I can,” Crowley wrote on Instagram.
“I’m still in a lot of pain right now, my whole body is swollen from my toes to my hands, my stomach is extremely bloated and literally has a sack of fluid and inflammation, which literally wobbles as I move.
“The real road to recovery starts now, there’s a huge plan I need to follow to get this arm back into daily life then even further again getting it back into the gym.”
