Wow I just missed out on a surefire 1,000,000 view YouTube video and an embarrassing obituary at the same time.

During my gym session today I was doing L sits in various ways. Towards the end of the workout I was looking for someplace different to do one. I walked over to the squat rack and saw the empty olympic sized bar racked there. Hmmm why not try to L sit ON TOP of the bar. Now of course this is a ridiculous idea since the bar is just sitting on the hooks and not secured in anyway. Well for some reason this obvious danger did not register in my brain for one second.

So I hop up on the bar and try to bring my legs up into position. As soon as my body weight shifts backward the bar rotates and I am instantly smashed into the ground head first, backwards. My fall made quite the racket as my body rattled around the bars on the rack as I flipped. Luckily only one set of eyes actually saw the incident. Lots of other eyes looked back after the noise and saw me on all fours holding my head inside the squat rack.

It had to look incredibly silly and stupid. In the big picture I could have been seriously hurt. I nailed my head pretty hard. My lower back isn’t feeling too great either. Dumb a$$.

In all seriousness though, glad you're okay and I hope your lower back is too!
