Bola Ojex tore his quads while squat training.
With just six weeks until the NY Pro, veteran bodybuilder Bola Ojex suffered an unfortunate injury during his training. During squat training Ojex tore not one, but both of his quads. A truly devastating turn of events for the pro who was hard at work prepping for the NY Pro.
Injuries are the absolute worst thing for an athlete to face. The recovery process can be truly annoying and sitting on the sidelines is simply no fun. While others are making improvements to their physiques and getting stage ready, Bola Ojex will unfortunately be out of commission.
That said it seems like the surgery for his injured quads went well. IFBB Pro and Classic Physique competitor Dani Younan posted about the incident on his Instagram page.
Please pray for my brother Bola… yesterday during our leg workout he tore both of his quadriceps squatting, one was partially torn & and one was completely torn. Bola was 6 weeks out from NY Pro, it was the best I’ve ever seen him! His surgery went very well & he’s rest and recovering right now, he will be back better and stronger!

While he may be out of commission for the foreseeable future, at least the surgery went well. With enough time and healing Bola Ojex will eventually get back on his feet and take the stage once again.
The Generation Iron team wishes Bola Ojex a speedy and safe recovery.
