Oh, the other week I was doing shrugs, 110lb dumbells. I lack the lower back strength to pick them up one at a time, (the twisting motion) so I had to put my foot on the rack bend over and pick them both up.
No problem, except this was my first time actually trying to pick them up with this method and the 220lb swung behind me and I stepped back 3 steps and got my balance and noticed a woman one step behind who was sitting there between her benchpress sets.

Whoops.

My fault, she accepted my apology though. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
