    spent last night in the ER

    So here it goes,im in the gym last night im doin chest and shoulders.I start out with db flat bench i do 4 sets ending with 120's for 6.I move over to decline bb bench my first set 10 at 225lb's i get done throw on 2 25'S now im at 275 i go bust out 7 going for my eighth one my right arm gives out the bar comes down slams me right across the neck!Pretty embarrising i know but it happend so whatever.So now i have 275 stuck on my neck choking the hell out of me and cant get it off,the gym is dead finally after atleast a minute or 2 this young kid comes runnin over grabs the bar and cant lift it!by now im almost out so another kid comes over they get the bar off i thought i crushed my throat, cant really breath too good can hardly swallow pulled all the muscles in my back and legs strugglin.I leave go home try callin the wife but i cant really talk hurtin like a mofo!!!!!!Not sure how bad the damage was i go to the ER they do catscans, x-rays all the good stuff so at 2 am they come to the conclusion that there is no major damage, just started gettin my voice back about a hr ago but holy shat am i sore!!!!!!

    That would have been a scary experience, best of luck shaking that crap and getting back to training (maybe with a spot in the future).

    I've had a few close calls, once I only managed to get one side racked and the other side came crashing down to the floor, but fortunately although the bar was on my neck it wasn't pressing to tightly, I was able to wriggle out.

    Man, i'm glad you did not get hurt but goddamn FREAK, you know better than that shit. No spotter? It's not about not being a "*****", its about lifting safe and preventing injuries man, you know this.

    Glad you're still with us, that's scary as hell man. Decline is sketchy for me, puts my arms in a weird place and this has just confirmed my idea of not doing it!

    Good to hear you didnt do major damage. These thigns happen sometimes your body just isnt in the right gear for heavy lifting. I once fell flat to the ground trying to squat 400lbs when I was 16. I bought more weights and figured I can do 295 20 times so 400 will be easy......with no warm up lol. fortunately I had a squat rack with safety bars. I could have broken my neck without the bars in.

    sounds pretty crazy... good to hear that your not damaged...

    I'm w/ rugger on not letting it get you down in the gym. Had it happen to me on a decline....stuck on my neck, felt like dweeb... guys came running and yelling like if I was dead.... quite embarrasing but i was back as soon as possible... learned to have a new appreciation of my limits...

    you better stick to the lil mans 135 on the bb....leave the big boy weight for me..




    just messin w/ ya, but you should check out the arm... that is what would keep me concerned for the future.
