    what would you say is your most embarrassing gym moment you've ever had?

    i'd say mine is dropping the bar onto myself while bench pressing...my arms just gave way and the next thing i know, the bar is sitting one my chest and i couldn't push it up at all..

    I was feeling very hype and I decided I should really try to work those shoulders very seriously, to push them to a new limit. After all, the idea behind weight-lifting is to always push a little further, isn't it?

    I had always been going easy on my shoulder because of an injury, but it had been a year now and pretty much totally recovered except one arm was kinda compensating for the other.

    Thus, I decided to do dumbell pull ups. And add a little 10 pounds on each shoulder.

    First series, amazing.
    Second series, great.
    Third series, second to last rep, I raised my left arm, and then SHLAK, it dislocated. The dumbell slammed on the floor and everybody turned around and noticed the irregular position of my arm and my colar bone proeminently appearing in place of my shoulder muscle, which is kinda situated in my armpit now...

    Anyways, I had to go through the whole gym (and believe me, it's HUGE) and ask for someone to help me replace it before I get answered :

    "I'm not touching this, I'm calling an ambulance man"

    After a little while, it really started to be fucking painful, I almost fainted under the pain. They replaced it at the hospital, I was pretty much drugged at this point lol...

    Now, I'm on rehab.

    IT SUUUUCKS !

    I was on vacation in CA and visiting an unfamiliar gym. The staff assigned me a locker and gave me a key. After working out, I put all my stuff into the locker -- including my very necessary contact lenses. I locked the locker. Unable to see clearly and fearful of losing the key, I put it on top of the locker.

    At least so I thought. What I really did was drop the key through the gap between the locker and the locked door so that the key fell into the locked locker.

    Needless to say, I didn't realize my mistake until after I had finished showering. Standing there cold and wet, wearing only the skimpiest of towels, I kept praying that someone would come into locker room to rescue me. But I guess heroes are hard to come by in the middle of the day. So I had to stumble across the gym floor -- blind, dripping, practically naked -- and beg the staff for help.

    At least my story has a happy ending: on my way out the manager told me I could use the gym for free anytime I wanted.

    That's always been a huge fear of mine. So, when i'm lifting very heavy and don't have a spotter, I do the Smith bench instead. In case my arms/chest give out or I'm not able to latch it back (or I lose my grip... which has happened once), at least I know I won't be crushed to death... lol. Just a little embarrassing to climb out from underneath the bar, I suppose...

    I dropped a weight bench on my foot and screamed like a little girl and the whole gym stopped and looked at me.

    When I tried to strike up a conversation with a guy.. But didn't realize how exhausted I was from my workout. I was so out of it, I really struggled with getting my thoughts into words. I'm pretty sure he thought I was retarded or something. icon_lol.gif

    Pulling the 45# plate from the bar before removing the 25#er... which landed right on the top of my foot.

    Oh I have a great one!
    So I got up on the stair master but when I turned on the machine I guess it picked up straight to where the previous person left off and i was not prepared to climb fast so i tripped on the stair master. I held on to the rail while my feet dangled at the bottom!!! hehe

    running on the treadmill listening to music, hadnt noticed that the wire from my headphones dangles pretty low, so while running i pull it accidentally with my left arm, which knocks my ipod down, i try to catch it and fail miserably so it lands on the treadmill, flies out through the back only to smack into someone's legs passing behind my treadmill...sigh ever since i keep my ipod in my pocket icon_smile.gif

    Well, not my moment, but someone else's;
    Some young Hot Italian guy was doing his usual workout but that day I noticed he wasn't wearing underwear. A few moments later, he was doing pullups after finishing his deadlifts, and he had a MASSIVE BONER!!! He looked like he measured around 8 inches, but he tried to go about his workout as if nothing's happening. I noticed a few blushing faces from the ladies, and the straight guys tried not to stare. But a few of us DID notice; I knew then who was Family, lol!
    He finally coudnt ignore it anymore and left.
    And I went home and took care of My business.... icon_wink.gif

    I suppose getting a stiffie in the gang shower, that's happened a number of times. I know it doesn't bother some guys to get wood, but it does me. Fortunately I was never reported, and in fact nobody in the showers said a word to me, but I know they saw them.

    You should love this, "jocks_and_socks"...I had to wear pink socks to the gym! I sweat bullets in yoga class and would slip and slide all over the mat without yoga socks, and once caught without them right before class I was forced to buy the last available pair in pink. Not that yoga class is where one traditionally exerts one's masculinity.

    when I was in high school we had lifting sessions for swimming after school. We did rotations with groups of people, and I was on the leg press at one point, only to let out a giant fart as I'm extending my legs back up.

    So embarrassing but haha whatever!

    Being stuck under a smith machine bar during a bench press and having to literally slither my way out.

    Also I just walked a mile uphill through the freezing cold at night only to get to the gym and realize that I forgot my gym clothes.

    I had just joined my gym. I was walking to the shower but instead of turning left, I turned right and walked in to the cardio room.

    A few weeks ago I was doing leg presses and had the ipod on. I lost all sense of where I was. I ripped a huge fart and realized there was someone standing next to me waiting for me to finish.

    Another was a guy doing seated shoulder presses. His dick was hanging out. He caught me staring and said "can I help you?". I just said. "Sorry man, you junk is hanging out"

    Ran 8 miles to the gym- noticed a FREE spinning class that day. Failed to notice the word "advanced". The bikes changed resistance automatically. I kept up to save face... Until I felt like I was going to pass out...


    Without warning- I choked down some vomit.. Then another wave came. I made it three steps away from the bathroom when I threw up on the tile and almost fell over.

    Yeah.. That feeling when you think your heart might explode? It's a bad sign. Back off from your workout icon_smile.gif
    Oh, also.. Don't run 8 miles at a pace much faster than usual without cooling down by walking, and Definitely don't try super mega spinning class afterward.

    I was on a stationary bike, plugged into to my ipod. The music was classical, fast and furious and I was using it to to achieve a really high intensity interval workout. During the 30s rest periods I was suddenly aware that everyone was looking at me - I was conducting!

    Not at the gym, but I was running along Dog Beach and I tripped over a dog that was too stupid to get out of my way. The dog, seeing me heading toward it, had a look of anticipation on its face that signaled "Ooh! Human wants to play!" But I had other plans.

    The dog was too big for me to hurdle, so I took the fall. The sand cushioned the impact. Luckily I was able to escape the embarrassment by running away.
