    be honest...dumbest or most embarrassing thing youve done in a gym

    I've heard everyone talk of others doing some dumb or embarrassing things at the gym, what were your biggest mistakes?

    Tried the "one more rep" trick on the hack squat equipment with no spotter on a Sunday morning.

    Felt like a right tit shouting for help to someone on the other side of the gym.

    I dropped the bar a few times on my chest.
    What did you do min0? You probably set the gym on fire, didnĀ“t you?

    This is hard to explain but I will try. I used to work out with this guy that squatted with over 7oo pounds. He had just finished his last set and we were done.

    As he was getting out of his wraps and suit I started tearing down the bar. We were using one of those multileveled box like squat racks. Any way I took all weights of one end of the bar. As I slid the last one off the bar the weight on the other end made it flip up in the air.

    The gym had a low drop in cieling. It's the type that you put up metal runners and then drop the tiles into the big squares. The bar took out about a 6 feet long swath as it crashed throgh the tiles..but that was not the end of it, it ripped out two of the wires that connect the runners to the cieling so about a 10 feet square section of the cieling and one flolurescent light fell down.

    We just stood there looking at each other and saying, Damn this is bad.

    The little goober that was runnig the place tried to tell us we were going to have to pay for it, but we told him we weren't paying for shit.Then my buddy started saying he was going to sue them becasue the gym was unsafe.

    The kid then said we were suspended from the gym. My buddy then said well, If I can't come back I am gonna stomp a mudhole in your ass before I leave. The kid started to mouth off but, I explained to the kid that my friend was a bouncer at a bar and got paid for stomping mudholes in peoples asses, so he probably would do a very good job on him.

    Suddenly things were all right..

    Had a very blonde moment this morning on the HS Iso Side Lat machine... never used it before so really didn't know how much weight I would need so put on 20lbs... nothing, added another 20lbs... still nothing (no lightbulbs going on yet!), added another 10lbs thinking there is no way in hell I should be able to do that much, still nothing, then the light DID go on... I was loading the the wrong bars, the ones where you unrack... duh, yes felt like a right fucking plonker!

    What about dropping the bar on your chest while doing deadlift or dropping the bar on someone else chest while they are doing the bench press?

    Well I do lots of things on a regular basis that I don't see anything wrong with and I feel completely comfortable doing but most of the other members find it awkward. I guess I just am not lady like when I train

    Some examples are:

    - Reapplying deodorant while sitting at the bench
    - Burping whenever I feel like it
    - Swearing in Italian or Spanish when I can't force a last rep
    - Making noises that resemble giving birth during decline situps
    - Flexing in the mirror 200 times to check out my pump and talking to myself while doing it


    Oh and if Bulletproof or Pfunk read this.... Yes girls fart
