Footage of leg press horror ahead of exclusive frontdouble interview

THREE years ago bodybuilder Eddie Sykes broke his pelvis during a 645kg leg press exercise. He was initially told that he had suffered no damage. Further, private, health tests confirmed he had severed his adductor longus and torn off his pectineus and pyramidalis . He was told he might never walk unassisted ever again, let alone train legs.

In September this year, Sykes won the Class 1 category in the NABBA Mr England. It is a turnaround like no other.

Frontdouble sat down with Sykes recently to discuss in detail exactly what happened and the range of deep emotions he went through during that time, his recovery and his determination to get back to the stage.

Here, with Eddie;s consent, we are reproducing part of his YouTube video, which shows footage of the moment his world fell apart.
