Some lifters get flattened in this week’s batch of top workout fails.

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.

Look, sometimes mistakes happen. Even the most skilled of athletes will trip up every once in a while. Sadly, this could lead to some painful accidents when it comes to lifting heavy weight in the gym. That’s just the nature of the game – and this week’s highlight workout fail shows how a routine lift can go horribly wrong.

The bench press is a classic exercise that almost anyone who hits the gym will perform – but when you are putting up heavier weight, you are essentially holding it all over your midsection. Which leads us to this bench press fail that ultimately turns into a flattening gut crunch… or belly bounce if you will.

But that’s just the highlight – we also have some strange lifts, some weird form, and a handful of other gym accidents that lead to painful workout fails. You can check it all out in the latest episode of Top Workout Fails Of The Week above!
