Re: Most Embarassing Crossfit Moments

After a healthy dose of Tabatas I went to flip up for a handstand hold and my shoulder gave out, I hit my head on the concrete (missed the abmat by that much), and my shoe kicked off and hit my girlfriend next to me who didn't even blink and stayed in the hold without ANY concern for the crack of my head to the concrete. The nerve. It was so tragic.

Re: Most Embarassing Crossfit Moments

Okay so I was two months into my crossfit transformation and I decided to use a steel grab bar, like they use for railings and so you can pick yourself up after you fall in the shower. Anyway, it was going wonderfully, I was learning to kip and could get 10 - 15 in a row. Well I should tell you that at the beginning of crossfit I was 275lbs and by two months I guess the steel was tired of me pulling on it every day. So needless to say I was in mid kip when the bar broke and I nearly landed on my head. I think the best part of all of this was I was showing my wife how I could do a pull-up now and she watched me eat it. After a quick laugh she asked me if I was okay.

Doing pull-ups at a cook out from a beam on my friend’s porch; losing my grip and falling on my butt…Beer was involved

Beer. The necessary evil in life.

Re: Most Embarassing Crossfit Moments

Here's mine:

I warmed up with a brisk 500m row and felt kind of off (I don't think I ate enough before attempting this WOD). I can't remember which WOD it was, but it involved 135lb thrusters. I did one, realized it was too much weight, and dropped the weight down to 95lbs because I felt so off that day. I had to begin with the bar on the ground, clean it, then do my thrusters. On the second or third rep, I cleaned it to my shoulders/chest, but forgot to grip the bar on the "thrust". I lost the bar over my head, turned to get away, and it crashed on the back of my head and shoulder. Saw some stars, but was okay.

Best part: I went to tell one of my friends the next day, and he said "Oh, that was you. People were talking about you in the gym later." Fail.

Re: Most Embarassing Crossfit Moments

My lifetime PR fart came during a heavy set of squats. It was a PR in all three categories; volume, duration, and odor. I had to rack the weight and check to make sure nothing was going to start running down my leg.

Unhappy Re: Most Embarassing Crossfit Moments

I went to a globo gym the other day as i couldnt make it to my usualy gym. I saw they had medicine balls and thought they would be great for ball slams...wrong.... I slammed the ball down and it unexpectedly came flying up and got me square in the face, no blood but plenty of witnesses!
