Today, I was teaching a friend to squat. While I was spotting him, he decided it would be a great idea to turn around. This wouldn't have been a problem, if he hadn't hit me in the face with the bar. FML

It's because of situations like this that I make a loud beeping sound each time I make sudden movements. It's not a choice or anything; it's a result of the slight brain damage I sustained when the bar hit me.

You should've squatted ubder the bar. Get that leg day in and avoid getting hit

I forgot to leave out some info on accident. He had been standing up straight and was complaining about uneven weight (it was even) so I was slightly to the side of him. I don't know why he turned around but he did

Unrelated to post, but does anyone else have a problem with Safari and the App Store opening every five fucking seconds while in FML?

It's obnoxious

Indeed, I can hardly use the app.

The links are gone when going back to Safari, so the links can't be given.

At least now you can get that nose job you always wanted! :-D

When I first started reading this I thought they were talking about squatting to poo

Ummmmmm, if you're spotting him, why would you be in a squat position as well? You can't grab the weight if he's in trouble if you're squatted. For that you got a deserve it.

Where in the FML did it say I was in the squat position? I was shorter than him and he was standing up straight when he turned around.

So… who spots the spotters?

We've had a fair few FMLs lately about the weight lifters being screwed over by the spotters, and now it's the other way around!

what about the rack?? it shouldn't have hit you in the face unless you were squatting on platform which is never a good idea

I don't know about most racks but our school uses ones where you pick it up and can take a few steps back while keeping the safety bars under you. Usually we don't worry about spotting squatters but he was new at it so our coach insisted.

I guess I accidentally left out the fact he was complaining about the weight being unbalanced so I had been slightly to the side checking the weight. Sorry for leaving that out.
