Moments of shame in the weight room

A few months back I fell doing 225lb squat cleans. The weight wasn't heavy, but the bar was bent so it tumbled. Nevertheless, embarrassing

My Ride: F30 328i M Sport
Two weeks ago on my back day I finished a set on the lat pulls and was walking to the drinking fountain. I was "in the zone" at that point and as typical with that state, I had the situational awareness of a fvcking rock. Female was with her personal trainer doing glute cable kickbacks out into the isle. I went walking past thinking I left enough room to clear the area she was in, but I was in fact too close and she planted the sole of her shoe straight into my right upper arm. I was like, "oops, sorry!!"

Best part was that it freaked her the hell out and she was all scared and thought she did some major no-no. Her trainer sees me in there all the time, so he seemed to be pretty aware that I was fine. She was amazed that when she kicked back into me, she went forward and I didn't move. Oops.

After answering the text I stepped back onto the treadmill but was surprised to find out the the treadmill was still fully running. It scared the **** out of me and spit me off so quick I sort of ran sideways while stumbling into the back row of ellipticals which were all in use. Because of my ear buds I'm not certain that I did not scream and swear.... I am soooooo thankful I have cat like reflexes and somehow didn't fall face first.

Not that embarrassing to fail a 225lb squat clean. I've let myself fall while bailing on probably every movement that goes into the front rack position.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

lol it's really not as douchey or angry as it sounds. i just have a habit of carelessly tossing/dropping a water bottle (after i take a sip) towards any wall/corner/upright surface adjacent to the apparatus i'm using, so it ends up resting on its side instead of standing up.

First time in the gym on the weekend in a while, doing flat bench, warm up set of 135 then first set at 205, went for an 11th rep and the bar went no where, two guys were right there so I calmly asked for a spot.

Could have just dumped the weight but then the whole gym would have known.

Re: Moments of shame in the weight room

^Lol good call.

I was lucky last Saturday because the gym was quite empty. I did some squats, last set was 6x225, so I decided to try something else.

I moved the safety bars to the lowest squat position, set the barbell on the them, and loaded up 245. Went under and pushed up. Nothing's moving. Removed the 2 10s, still nothing. Checking around in the meantime to see if anybody's watching. I had to go down to 185lbs to be able to move the bar up.

I am sure somebody noticed the failure, but luckily not too many people were around. Good exercise though. Really shows you your weak points in your form.

No thanks. If you're lifting to absolute failure every time you are in the gym, you are killing yourself...

I was being sarcastic, I usually lift without a spot and try not to overdo it, went for that extra rep today and it didn't work out.

Re: Moments of shame in the weight room

Without a spot is the way to do it. I only get a spot if I'm trying a weight I didn't try before.

This is the mindset I have, and I think everybody should have when lifting. Its clear that you won't actually get there but the effort is what makes a workout a WORKOUT and not just a leisurely stroll through the weightroom.

There's a a sweet spot between total failure and one rep before failure that I think you should strive for... Complete failure every single time you are in the gym is overtraining for sure.

Exactly, I failed on the 11th rep, who the **** goes for an 11th rep anyways.

Re: Moments of shame in the weight room

There are types of workouts where you need 15 reps, but there is a specific purpose for this (called a depletion workout, where you are trying to deplete muscle glycogen in order to force fat oxidation). But you do it only at 50-60% of your 1rm. Definitely not at 80%+.

For strength training, 6-8 reps at around 80% of your 1rm has been proved to be optimal. You still need to periodically deload and reload every 3-4 weeks. I could post links, but I believe one should do their own research for their own good.

Now let's get the thread back on track: moments of shame!

So every morning when I arrive at the gym, I have a habit of dropping a pre workout bomb in the men's room, then going upstairs to the weight room to crush it. Emphasis on the men's room aspect...


So last week, particularly on Friday, I show up to the gym and the men's room had no available bathrooms (they were all occupied) so I'm like well I'll just use the common area mixed gender bathroom. So I go in there, and do my business. I actually chuckle to myself while I'm in there cause this particular bomb literally destroyed the room's air quality. So I finish up and I open the door to find a really cute girl standing patiently waiting, she looks up and smiles at me and proceeds straight into the BR.








Lifting while she was on a treadmill right near me the whole time wasn't awkward what so ever.

Moments of shame in the weight room

Changing weight on pull downs and having the bar drop on the back of my head.

Doing heavy pull downs and the cable snapped on me sending me flying backwards and the weight plates crashing back down.

Tripping on a box while backing into position doing box squats and having to bail a fully loaded barbell.

Crushing my hands on the dumbbell rack.

Doing box jumps and missing, resulting in a face plant with bloody skinned shins. (Happens regularly)

10 yrs in the gym I could keep going lol
