If you have been lifting for a while, you are bound to have experienced some sort of training injury. While looking back at mine, I can say a few of them could have been prevented and were due to sheer stupidity. Feel free to also post observing someone else’s stupidity. So lets swallow our pride and share some laughs. I will start…
I broke three toes on my right foot last year while doing bench presses of all things, lmao. I took a 45 off but forgot there was also a 25 on there. It dropped and landed straight on my foot. Dahum, that sh*t still hurts when I think about it. Lesson learnd: pay attention while taking the pies off.
Two years ago I was doing leg presses in boots and had forgotten to bring my socks so I said f*ck it and went bare foot. After pushing 1200+, my nail on the big toe actually pierced into the front of the boot and I could not take it off without tearing most of it off. I actually had to cut the boot open a bit, haha. Funny but painful as hell. Lesson learned: Always wear socks and cut your nails before a heavy leg press day.
