Sometimes you lift so hard everything blacks out… that’s when the fall happens.
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.
Another week, another video showcasing the top workout fails submitted via our GymFuckery platform. It’s a dedicated job looking through all of these painful submissions – but someone has to do it! This week’s big highlight comes in the form of a heavy deadlift that goes wrong. No bad form or broken bones (thankfully) but this lifter pushes himself so hard that he faints and comes tumbling down to the floor with a heavy bang.
Unfortunately, fainting after a deadlift is more common than you think and could lead to some potentially dangerous falls since the person isn’t conscious to brace for the fall. That’s why spotters are always a good idea and a deadlift area with some padding could be helpful as well.
Beyond that we have some other weight drops and strange form in the gym as usual. Do you think all of these wacky people doing the strangest movements all meet up once a month to talk about their strange lifting style?
Check out the latest episode of Top Workout Fails Of The Week above and make sure to stick around every Friday for more insane, funny, and painful videos!
