MOST EMBARRASSED I'VE EVER BEEN IN A GYM
It was shoulder day and I had just finished warming up while I was waiting for this little short arab guy to get off the military press bench so I could start my workout. I do a quick set with just the bar and two warm-up sets with a 25 on each side. I then proceed to complete my first working set with 135 and when I go to rack it my right arm was above the support of the rack (because the short guy lifted the seat way up) and the barbell started dropping behind the entire freaking bench and I just let go because I know it's either move my arm or get it broken/dislocated. Once I let go I jump up and hear the loudest crash ever as the entire barbell and weights fall 7 feet to the ground. The barbell then flips over the bench and lands 6 inches from my leg almost hitting me in the back of the head on the way down. EVERY ****ING BODY is looking at me and the gym is packed. Luckily this guy doing incline bench next to me helps me get **** straight and I go on about my workout...just figured i'd share my moment of stupidity.
Note to fellow lifters: alway check for seat height before lifting.

Was squatting 185 after 135 last year. Decided to go from 185 to 315. Got the bar up, stood back and went into a deep sqaut. Could not get back up, and did not have a spotter.. I fell on my knees and had the bar on me for a good thirty seconds before I threw it off my shoulders causing a loud crash. This guy on the t-bar machine to my right, about a foot away was like "you need some help brah".. I was like nah dude, im just stuck with 315lbs on my back, im focking G2G..

I did the same thing in January, except I held onto the bar and royally screwed up my left shoulder (though I did recover the bar). 7 months later and it seems to be back to 100%, I had months of light lifting and cutting sets to work around it.

I was squatting 240. The barbell had been greased that morning and of course I wasn't using this spring retainers. I don't even make it halfway down on the first rep when first the 2 plates from one side slide off, then the other side slide off. Shatters a mirror on the nearby wall in a million pieces.
I wasn't embarrased though, it was more like a Beavis and BUtthead Moment: "woah, cool that mirror is broken"

Getting stuck with a floor press is the worst cause you can't throw it anywhere until someone comes to help.

I was doing heavy clean and press after a long day of work a few months back. I locked out 225 x2. We cant ditch it at my gym. I need to lower to chest the. Thighs then ground. I guess I just droped the bar on my chest knocking me to the ground with the bar landing over me. Lucky I'm skinny and there was enough room under the bar so I didn't get crushed.
Every one in the packed gym was looking at me and a few people ran over freaking out. I was fine and had to laugh. I was embarrassed.

Ever slipped while doing powercleans?...

Yup, some places like to show off their logos on the platform and think a high gloss finish would be great...Especially colleges

X2 on the shorts blowout! I have ripped farts numerous times gettin out the hole on squats. Needless to say i never get out after lettin one fly...the lift is down hill from there. Shot snot out my nose a few times also. Im never embarrassed though.

Yup once I suppose my shorts where to tight. My first heavy set I went down and rip. That just means your going low enough! I luckily had a dirty but un torn pair in my gym bag.

Ripped a few pairs of underwear but not my shorts yet.

Been there, done that. Worst part was I was only 15 and had to ride my bike home from the gym that day.

I quickly came to realize that spot was cat urine, the smell was cat pee, and of course, I did not have a second pair of shoes to change into. But I was 15, and pretty much everybody does something embarrassing at that age.

I was 18 at ballys doing eagle loop deadlifts. (yes yes grip fanatic I know) Was going for 500 for the first time. nailed it stood up and well blacked out. I woke up face first on the ground with my fingers still in the loops. People came running over they wanted to call an ambulance I was like answer my question first did I lock it out. They wouldn't answer. Finally someone guys if we give you your answer will you give us yours. I said sure. There like yeah you stood there for 5 seconds before you passed out. I'm like ok good and if you pay for the ambulance and trip to the hospital I'll go. They said no so I said ok good. Now watch my face I made a few quick faces they said nothing sagged (stroke test) and I went on my way.
