This Had Great Potential – Part VII

Bench Press Fail

It’s the screams of desperation that make this video. Calling out for his mom and his dad as he’s stuck on that bench with weight bar keeping him locked in by the neck – awesome. A true champion of “gore potential”. Maybe he should build some muscle with toothpicks before trying a bench press.

  1. We need to eventually figure out a way to program or whatever our bodies to get and stay ripped without all the supplements, steroids, or even time in the gym.

    • I use the bench press all the time when I bench press at my gym. It was very seriously for me to see that guy choking on his bench, I felt like rushing over to lift that weight off his chest.
      Everyone at my gym, whether they are black, mexican, asian, or white, are all very courteous. They all hold open the door, respect your rights to the equipment, and would help you spot a bench, etc. I really felt sorry for that boy stuck under his own ego.

      • Exactly. Typical error of the new guys at the gym. Like yourself, I also felt sorry for this kid. Luckily this has never happened to me, but I’ve seen a number of people who had that happened to them. Pretty sure they got hurt after a few seconds of trying to lift that weight. What a relief to finally get that weight off of him, although I’m sure he’ll be using less from now on…

      • Interesting…. I would’ve never guessed gym rats would be so courteous. Now I don’t have the apprehension I used to. I’ve been meaning to start a regimen of resistance/light weight training. Having read your comment, I’m actually looking forward to it now.

      • Awwww…. Poor kid. The look on his face tugged all my maternal heart strings. Were i there–I woulda rushed over, helped him out, checked his throat, and rubbed his back till he could get his bearings. Eesh, I must be getting old because I looked at that guy and instantly regarded him as a kid (hey, age is subjective). The first response in my mind was similar to tending a sick child in my previous work in child care.

        I was a competitive swimmer when I was (what looks to be) age, and that entailed weight lifting. I over-estimated myself one day and nearly wound up in the same situation. Fortunately, I wasn’t alone, but there was a moment I thought I’d be crushed for sure.

        (Correct me if I’m wrong (physics is not my primary area of study), but I’m guessing below:)
        If this happens to anyone in the future, I advise drawing your legs up the moment you feel yourself slipping, get your knees under the bar, and push against it while simultaneously pointing your toes and tucking your feet under as much as possible, creating a slope for the weight to tumble down away from vital organs *without*–hopefully–crushing your feet in the process. While both are unfortunate, Injured shins are not nearly as dangerous as injured organs and/or the bones around them.

        If you are past the point of employing that tactic, when you are lifting, don’t let your feet go up in the air like his did. It destabilizes the body and compromises strength. Planting them firmly down and pushing against the bench-seat offsets the upper body, inclining an upward kinetic energy–a degree of leverage.

  2. I think most young american males who have free weights at home have gone thru this. Most will usually roll the bar towards the legs. The worst part is squashing your dick and balls. Once you get to your thighs it’s not that bad. Sometimes your lousy friends are standing around laughing at you.

  3. Sorry this was staged by this idiot. If u notice how easily he was able to initially lift it off, you can tell there wasnt much weight at all in those plastic weights. Not fooled.

    • Anybody can lift that shit of the hooks easily and hold it up for a good while, its bringing it down and lifting them back up that’s a bitch.

  4. lol…always have a spotter to help you out maxing out on a bench press with Weight sets overall 250lbs+, this would’ve of been good gore if it wasn’t for his chicken neck.

  5. Haha that shit was too fucking funny…and what kinda weirdo creep video tapes himself working out that’s just strange makes me wonder if he did this on purpose I doubt it tho those screams for help sounded pretty genuine…the guys a dumbass tho he didn’t even warm up before he attempted to lift all that weight that’s just fucking stupid of him.

    • And besides if your guna try and lift that much you should always have a spotter…fucking amateur nooblet…go back to lifting your moms wrist weights.

  6. you cant feel bad because its funny and because when no one is there to spot you and u dont sound to sure about your lift this is bound to happen haha

  7. finally made an account on here. thought id share that. gotta say that this kid is a fucking idiot, why would you be lifting any sort of weight on the bench without a spotter? he shouldve caught the bar with his neck, but alas we didnt get that lucky. im sure some other fuck head will eat shit doing this and then we can all laugh :) cheers

  8. Ah, youth. It’s wasted on the young. This explains why so many crimes go unheard by neighbors, etc. In our house, you simply can’t hear from one end to the other. It’s scary. He is just young and dumb and had to learn the hard way. Luckily he didn’t die from the incident like that Russian bench press fellow who dropped the weight on his chest and died a couple of hours later.

    • I have to admit that i have also found myself in this predictament and escaped the same way but i didn’t stack the bar…… honest! i wasn’t trying to unleash the inner hulk.

  9. Back in high school i tried to do this in the gym and was like fuck no i can’t lift i just walked away of course there was the whole classroom in there but still i wouldn’t go all the way lol
