there may be a thread like this but i’m lazy and didn’t want to check. today i was doing front squats and worked from doing walkout front squats to monolift reverse band front squats for reps of 10 then 8. decided to put on my squat suit for some heavier rep work.
well on my first suited front squat i unracked the weight, went down, started to come up, then noticed my arms were going kinda numb and the radio started to get louder, my vision started to go and i completely thought i was gonna lose the weight and just faint, but i leaned forward and racked the weight, then my whole body started to shake uncontrollably, i could barely see, couldn’t really feel my limbs, couldn’t hear and was standing mainly because i was leaning against the safety bars and support of the monolift.
it soon went away and i was back to normal but confused about what happened, well i felt fine now and the weight felt really easy so i added 40 more pounds and asked for side spotters in case anything bad would happen again and went back at it, this time with no problem, so i chalked it up to having the bar to far back against my throat and cutting off my airway and not a stroke lol after that i added another 50 pounds, hit that for a double and glad i pushed through and didn’t stop front squatting because that was my best front squat day i’ve had.
i think that is the best hardcore gym moment i’ve had thus far. was curious as to any other hardcore moments that people are proud to have done?
