Turns out a straight line is definitely the shortest distance between two points, but can also be the most painful. I found this out yesterday when I tried to push press a barbell through the bottom of my chin.
I was on the last rep of my last set of overhead press and I just ran out of gas. Instead of racking the weight my stubborn ass decided I would just push press it for the last rep. Apparently my head wasn’t prepared for the increase in speed and didn’t get out of the way.
I sent the barbell smashing into my chin so hard I almost dropped the weight. I managed to regain control and finish the set. Today I have a nice bruise and a sore jaw to show for it. Has anybody else done anything this retarded or am I the only one???
