In What Embarrassing Way Did You Injure Yourself? [Video]
Okay, I will admit that I have an option to not tell you about this, but it's too funny not to share.
Sunday afternoon I found my Iron Gym pull up bar. If you don't know, it's a bar that you can put in your doorway and do pull ups on. It works really well, I just haven't used it in a really long time.
The reason I haven't used it is because for some reason it doesn't fit the doorway in my apartment very well. I bought the piece of equipment while I lived in my previous apartment. It fit perfectly snug in the doorways there, never an issue.
Sunday night around 11 p.m. I came across the pull up bar and figured I'd give it another chance. I put it in the doorway, and even though it didn't fit correctly is still seemed pretty stable.
Can you guess what happened next?
I start doing pull ups! Yeah! 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and CRACK! THUD! S&%#!
The connection my pull up bar had to my doorway gave way.
After realizing I didn't lose any limbs I started cracking up because I know my neighbors heard my 170 pound body smash the floor.
No broken floor boards, no broken bones, just a bruised butt and ego.
If you're wondering, it went something like this.
As frustrating as it was, it was great to laugh and fail in a spectacular way. No pain no gain! Back to it!
So, in what embarrassing way did you injure yourself?
