Looks like some people might need to start wearing face guards at the gym…

TOP WORKOUT FAILS OF THE WEEK – is a weekly digital series highlighting the best (or worst?) workout fails submitted to Generation Iron and GymFuckery. Combining training injuries, ego lifts, extremely bad form, and even worse decisions. This digital greatest hits of workout fails will make you cringe and laugh to wash away to work week. New episodes every Friday.

Injuries happen at the gym – it’s sadly unavoidable due to the mere fact that weightlifting involves heavy weights and metal machinery. As much as safety and precautions are pursued by the gym and (most) of the people training, accidents happen. That’s why things like form and knowing your limits isn’t just boring talk – it’s important in order to prevent injury. Because if you are injured then you’re no longer able to train your hardest to improve in the gym (and it just hurts and is dangerous – of course).

But as long as there are cameras and the internet there will always be workout fails caught on camera. And this week’s best videos leads off with a barbell whipping up into a lifters face unexpectedly… and if it even hurts half as much as it looks, it’s enough to make us cringe. It’s not all pain though – there are some hilarious bad form and short rep videos here to give you all a laugh without having to look away from the screen.

Check it all out in this week’s episode of Top Workout Fails Of The Week above!
