So it appears we’ve found the reason for Calum von Moger’s recent injury.
Sometimes we can get overzealous, particularly when we’re doing something we love. For those that count bodybuilding as their passion there comes a time when your love of lifting and your necessity to have a laugh somehow combine. For Calum von Moger the mixture backfired.
While at Gold’s Gym Venice, Calum von Moger bumped into Classic Physique Olympia runner-up Chris Bumstead. The two exchanged pleasantries and eventually to decided to make a lifting video together.
That’s when things took a turn for the worse.
While attempting to curl 400 lbs on a barbell through the combined efforts of both Calum and Chris, the Australian bodybuilder ended up injury his bicep. Take a look at the Instagram video posted by Calum von Moger himself confirming the injury and training mishap.
DONT TRY THIS! last night I had this crazy idea that me and @cbum_ should attempt a 400lb barbell curl. Was all fun and games until I tore my bicep. I really should have known better, I forgot to warm up properly and should have used #koalafreak pre from @staunch.nation instead of the stim free ? Bicep: Pretty sure it’s a Grade 2 tear going off the web and the symptoms. Can Take up to 3 weeks before I’ll get strength back. I’ll try and see a specialist and get their opinion on it too. Note: Learn from my stupid mistakes! You can see half the arm workout on my YouTube ch.
Do you think this injury will have a lasting effect on Calum von Moger?
