Today, I was at the gym with my friends when they invited me to do a few bench presses. Since I'd never done any before, I decided to start with no weights on the bar and work my way up from there. I wound up pinned beneath the bar, calling for my friend to come free me. FML

you dont deserve that bc it is my assumption that 98% of the population can lift a 45 lb barbell. 7-12 yr olds included. Spotter next time homeboy. Always when trying new exercises and eat that protein mix after workouts. Sounds like you need to gain some weight and muscle

Don't be so pathetic next time.

omg!! that's sooo funny!!! happened to me too but 1 i'm a girl, a weak one, 2 the guy ended up asking me out right afterwards. so i'm glad it happened. but still I repeat I'm a girl, a weak one at that!!!!'

I would have guessed he was a European???? I'm never wrong about telling Europeans and californians. you sure you didn't put your location wrong???

I mean again, I was able to bench the 45 lb bar 15 times for the 6th grade fitness test oh say...... well whatever, I'm a sophmore now. if you do live on America, get off your laazy ass and work out, i do 4 sets of 10 curling 40's for toning work. your pathetic

I could do 20 reps of 90 when I was 12 ;) all bragging aside, OP your a disgrace to this great nation. GET OUT OF MY COUNTRY! *redneck accent*

#157, it is 'you are pathetic' , and yes, you are. different people have different life choices, if someone doesn't excel in weight lifting that is fine as long ad they enjoy their life. arrogant ego manic like you is sad

Do you people not understand that no one on here cares how much you can bench. That being said, you should probably work on fixing that OP

depends on how many reps OP did... 45 lbs can get heavy after 20+ reps...

how old are you? 5?

the fuck? My 11 year old son can lift that 10 reps

Wait, a barbell without weights is 45 lbs? That's more than I expected.. Still, unless you're a pre-teen, that shouldn't be too hard if you're using both hands, and definitely shouldn't pin you...

Im a pre teen and i can do the barbell and still have 50 pounds on it easy

You're so cool

Haha yeah get your friend to spot you next time.

Don't be so pathetic next time.

Take the necessary precautions when trying a new exercise!

What were your friends doing? They should've been spotting you...

Agreed ^^^ , Thatss Sadd .

wow i really hope that you are not a guy. I'm a 19 year old girl and have been able to atleast bench the bar(45lbs) since I was like 14 so if your a guy that is a major fail and seriously FYL

Without proper form or previous chest workouts benching just the bar could be hard. Make sure you start with machines or just Dumbbell presses before you do bench press, especially if your new to working out. And also, allways but allways have someone with you when you bench. Benching alone is limiting yourself.
