Default What's the last stupid thing you did?

I was going through the very beginning of my warm up today. Because I'm an old fart, the beginning of my warm up is basically getting the blood going and loosening up the old joints. At this point, my focus isn't honed in, yet. As I had power snatches on the menu today, I began to loosen up with the bar. I threw the bar up, and, as I said, my focus isn't wear it should be, I failed to bring my head back. So, SMACK! The bar nails me square in the forehead.
So, now I get to wear a big bump in the middle of my forehead that lets everyone know how big of an idiot I am sometimes.

good one ! Last really stupid thing for me in the weight room was a couple of years ago - I got in the squat rack and loaded 225 ( did not think to check the floor ) some gym bro had spilled water on the floor..... I stepped back with the bar on my shoulders, slipped, and fell straight back.... the pins caught the weight and a younger guy came over to help me up.... major embarrassing moment always check your surroundings, kids !!

I had 2 straight squat warm up sets last week where I forgot to put a 45 pound plate on the right hand side of the bar.

This usually happens to me once every 5 years. Guess I was sleep-squatting.

I did the same thing with a stick warming up. I was doing hang muscle snatches and talking to my Oly coach. The look on his face when I did it was hilarious even though I was embarrassed and ended up with two black eyes. It always got brought up every couple of weeks.

I once upright rowed the bar into my chin and cracked a tooth.

Gym follies. nice!
First time using suicide grip performed nine reps flawlessly, tenth rep I exploded up to lockout which proceeded to dump the weight at full extension onto my chest. There was silence broken only by my laughter at how asinine. 275 was on the bar sure that was the reason for their initial silence.

It's been a long while but once I about knocked myself unconscious by hitting the back of my head on a barbell while I was over aggressively setting up to bench press.
