I've done 75 lbs before, but I guess I wasn't able to get them up after recently upping the weight on flatbench dumbbell press that same day.
Too fat to be a bodybuilder..
Too weak to be a powerlifter..
Think I've only ever dropped a barbell once while doing the standing palms-up barbell behind the back wrist curl. Just kind of slipped out of my hands - but I was embarrassed, lol. Never fell off any treadmill though hahaha.
I have had very similar but perhaps more extreme examples
I often train beyond the 'avg joe' due to my MMA and many a time towards the end of my run on the treadmill I start to go faster and steeper.....
The build up of lactic acid makes me sick so I start to puke profusively but I tend to continue running while retching....its usually when I start to really puke hard that I loose my balance and am flung into the wall behind me but, I shrugg it off and run rite back onto the machine.
needless to say the people in the gym I train at don't really take that much notice of it all since we are all training in MMA its a common occurence to push yourself beyond the limit!
screw treadmills. walk around you community to get exercise and get to know people who live around you
that being said, treadmills are fantastic, especially with some of the new technology they are finally implementing (not talking tv's, talking durability and functionality)
Dropped a 100 lbs dumbbell on my chest and broke my rib just last month
OT:- Not done nothing quite that bad but came close a fair few times most recently when my towel fell from the display and caught round my leg. Thankfuly before I fell I managed to hit the emergency stop so
If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play at it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's WoW.
I think my biggest problem with a treadmill is the fact that I have nothing to focus on. If I'm looking up at a TV or something, I may lose my balance. So more often than not I just end up looking at how much distance I've covered or the time I've been on there. It makes it feel like I've been there for freaking ever or that I've done so little. At least outside in the woods I can just focus on where I'm stepping and then stop whenever I get back to my car once trails get boring or something.
No. You fell off a treadmill? All i can say is hurr.
May being the key word. I've never fallen. I've tripped up and caught myself then had to stop watching the TV near the ceiling. I wouldn't be so quick to say things like that, though. You'd be shocked at the amount of people who trip on nearly anything -- even a sidewalk.
