Just wrecked myself
Alright i was busy all day today and i didnt get home till 12:30am. My gym closes at 12. So i say what the hell just do shoulders and traps at home (i have a cable set and free weights). So im about to do shrugs with the whole weight stack on the cables. So i get my back in good form to get the weight off the ground and pull the bar... next thing i know the whole machine is moving with me and one of the supports comes off the ground and hooks into my big toe nail (i didnt have shoes on... im a dumb ass). Well the nail rips off on contact. Now with nothing to stop it the support goes up my foot leaving a gash. Now i cant drop the machine as it would then land back on top of my foot. I have to stand there for about 30sec trying to get my foot out of the way so i can set it down. My foot was all bloody and my toe was (still is) throbbing. I went to that gas station to get a quart of bud light and im drinking it now while reading on AR. Just wanted to rant that my foot is busted and it sucks

Dude, you should go get that checked out by a foot specialist. You are going to have to summer-foot it in until it heals or it could get a nasty infection. The beer aint goning to help healing either.

man i can understand sorta how that works. i was re-racking some 95lbs DB's after doing incline and i musta been tired and wasnt paying attention but my right index finger got between the rack and the DB. it split the skin from outside the nail at the bottom of the finger all the way to the begining of the nail growth, had to cut out all the old nail.

Suck it up son, cauterize the wound by pouring some black powder on it and lighting it then begin your next set.

I took a shower first and cleaned it. It was still bleeding when i got out, but i put a bandaid on it. I had to get gas for my car due to the hurricane, so i got a beer to dull the pain and make sleeping an ease
