    Duncan Brothers' Injuries: Caused by Sibling Rivalry?

    Maybe these guys need to have "joint workouts with brother" listed as a prohibited activity in their contracts?


    Is sibling rivalry cause of Duncans’ troubles?

    Outfielder Chris Duncan believes the sports hernia that ended his season a few weeks early might have been a result of a heated offseason sibling rivalry in the weight room. The 26-year-old Duncan said he and brother Shelley, 27, an outfielder with the New York Yankees, usually lift weights and work out together in the offseason. As kids, the sons of Cardinals pitching coach Dave Duncan constantly battled, and it has carried over to their professional careers.

    “This offseason we tried to work out together, and it got so bad we started going to the gym at separate times,” Chris Duncan said. “We’d warm up playing basketball and the next thing you know we were going full on.

    “We can’t do that, we’re going to get hurt.”

    In the weight room, they’re forever trying to top one another. Now both brothers have sports hernias. Shelley Duncan, who also has a bone bruise in his left pelvis, is postponing his operation until the Yankees’ season is over.

    “I’d go and then he would put another plate on, then I would go and I’d try to slip one on, and the next thing you know we’re like blown out,” Chris Duncan said. “We can’t work out together, it gets too competitive.”

    Duncan underwent surgery Thursday for what turned out to be a double hernia. The trouble began with an injured left groin, and he said after about a week of compensating for that injury the other side began to bother him.

    Operating on both groins increases the rehab time by two weeks for Chris Duncan, who said he should be fully recovered in 10 weeks. He’s restricted to walking for 10 days and then said he can resume lifting.
