The latest batch of workout fails brings is all pain and no gain.

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 Friday means another episode of the Top Workout Fails Of The Week. After a while going through these submissions can start making you question reality. For example, how are more insanely painful injuries not happening more at the gym? With all of the bad form, stunts, and strangeness going on in these videos we would expect to see reports in the news every single day about deaths and injuries at the gym.

Yet here we are instead with another highlight reel of funny videos instead of hospital reports. This is a good thing – but after you watch this batch of fails you’ll maybe start to wonder yourself how we are surviving as a species.

The highlight this week included a man who wants to strengthen his knuckles by just… punching a metal bar over and over. Maybe he’s just trying to numb his hands before the next real workout so he doesn’t feel any pain?

You can check it out alongside our other workout fail picks in this week’s episode of Top Workout Fails Of The Week above!
