Woman's Painful Deadlift Fail Will Put You Off The Gym For Life

Nov | 108 sharesEmma Guinness

In an ideal world, most of us would love to have the time, energy and motivation to visit the gym often enough to get the body of our dreams. Despite being relatively petite, whenever I date a gym bunny, I find myself looking at their sculpted form and hating on my own for being comparatively scrawny. However, when I bring up the possibility of hitting the gym myself, I'm put off by their stories of people who try and fail to use the equipment - usually, with hilarious consequences.

Whether it's lifting weights that are too small to have any effect, or spending more time taking #fitspo selfies than working out, some people would be much better off investing in a personal trainer or taking advantage of the gym tours which almost all facilities offer to prevent this from happening in the first place. Or, y'know, just giving up altogether.

This woman's terrifying deadlift fail is enough to put any prospective gym-goer off for life: 

Needless to say, it's unlikely that a novice would attempt a lift like this, so what happens in the video above is a testament to the fact that even relatively experienced fitness fanatics can end up looking like idiots if they aren't careful.

Usually, when you're trying something new, it's best to start small and then work your way up - and in the gym, this could involve starting out on one of the easier to use machines like a treadmill. After all, jogging can't go wrong? Right? RIGHT?!

To see 25 people who struggled to even use a treadmill properly, check out the video below: 

But even when you graduate to a more complex piece of equipment, it's important to remember that accidents can and do happen if you aren't careful at all times. As this man discovered when he decided to help his gym partner lifting.

You'll struggle to watch this gym fail because it's so painful looking: 

Not only was this man in extreme pain, but it's no secret that a hard enough whack to the testicles can lead to a number of complications including infertility. Thankfully, however, most kicks in the balls, though painful, do not lead to any permanent damage as the testicles hang in a sac outside the body and are made of a spongey material. We can only hope that this was the case for the man in the video above.

While most gym bunnies would like to work out an idiot-free environment, unless you're lucky enough to splash out on your own private facility, flexing your muscles alongside idiots is inevitable. But if they, like the woman deadlifting at the start of this article, simply make one miscalculation and injure themselves, try not to be too harsh - you could be next!
