At some point or another just every bodybuilder and athlete on the planet is bound injure himself. Fortunately, for most of us they are usually small and do not produce anything more than a slight inconvenience for a few days.
Sometimes though-especially if you're a power lifter, strongman or competitive athlete-they can stretch for weeks or months and even bring your training stopped.

Almost all of this is pain that could be common among athletes as the strong force, power lifting and other competitive athlete.
Many of these problems are caused by soft tissue injury that usually occurs in one of two ways: acute conditions (tension, tear, strain, etc.); or the accumulation of small tears caused by doing the same movement over and over (micro-trauma). When this happens, they can cause the body to produce a dense scar tissue in the affected area.
Scar tissue builds up and as it does, it becomes more widespread impact. As a result, we are suffering from a variety of reduced motion, loss of strength, and of course, pain.
