Guy Faces Lucky Fall After Pull-Up Exercise Goes South
If you’re afraid of making a mistake when it comes to doing pull-ups incorrectly, or you can’t quite do one yet but want to learn how, there are a lots of tutorials that will help you scale pull-ups until you can do them, get started in a gym, and how to train at home if you don’t have a gym. Because if you can’t do them properly, the exercise may have serious consequences regarding your health.
Take this guy for instance. He was competing in the 2018 CrossFit open in the last event of the five weeks. He was on the set of 18-chest to bar pull-ups when his grips slipped and he momentarily blacked out and found himself on the ground all numb for a couple of seconds.
The man seems to be doing everything right while the lady is counting the number of pull-ups done. He starts hanging on the bar. He grips the bar shoulder-width apart with straight arms and then he pulls himself up by pulling his elbows to the floor. He keeps pulling until his chin passes the bar. Then he lowers himself all the way down until his arms are straight. Then he pulls up again. However, all of a sudden, at one moment, instead of pulling himself up, the man lets go off the handlebar, flies backward and falls directly on his neck. The woman is startled as she jumps off her feet, afraid to death that he might have hurt himself. Besides the pain, he obviously feels, there is nothing wrong with him. How lucky was this guy!
Pull-up is an upper-body, compound exercise. Your back and arms pull your body up while your abs prevent your lower back from arching. You can emphasize your arms by gripping the bar with your palms facing up.
In order to motivate you to exercise more, take a look at another funny video of people trying to do their best in the gym. This clueless guy pretends to be gym enthusiast, but fails at the hip thruster!
This poor sob clearly needs a girlfriend! Dude is all dressed up, the focus is sharp, headphones on a probably blaring with music too loud for him to think what the heck he is doing. We always have the best intentions to workout consistently and reach our fitness goals, but after a while, we sabotage ourselves and give up. Why do we give up when we know that reaching our fitness goals is so important? Sometimes, however, giving up might be a good option since some people are just not meant for the gym.
We gotta say, that is as unique a movement as any. For those of you who are not well versed with the machines at the gym, that is a cable lat pull-down machine. You grab the bar, stand at an angle, engage your latissimus dorsi muscles and pull down. It is pretty self-explanatory really.
You know you should probably exercise, but starting a new workout habit is hard. It's tough enough to get up early to go to the gym without enduring painful side aches and uncomfortable itching through your workout. This guy here is the perfect example of a person that is dedicated but just might not know the ropes just yet. However, it doesn't hurt to try and that is exactly what he does.
The next day after an intense workout at that gym can be even more challenging than the gym itself! Your muscles and body get sore, you do not want to move and you just want to lay in bed all day. Sometimes the workout can be so intense that your muscles tend to cramp up easily even days after that workout. That seems to be exactly the case in this clip here!
