FAIL @ Squat today!

Today went for my leg routine at the gym.

Leg curls
Leg extensions
Seated leg press

Then i tried to finish off with some squats after a short break:

Racked up to 90kg to get a PB....1 rep OK 2 rep HARD 3rd rep and on my way up my legs just ran out of energy and i leaned to the right and fell right back away from the squat rack and onto the floor!

2 or 3 regulars i see there were watching + one of my collegues and i felt like the worlds biggest plonker!!

Has this happend/is it regular? Because i see these guys quite often and now i feel like a total neb.
My technique was good but i think i should have called it quits after the 2nd, considering i had no spotter and i f*kin held onto the bar instead of dropping it onto the supports.

Have i really made such a epic mistake which i am making it out to be.


I think they are trying to out-alpha you.

    Squatting at the end of a workout is not the best idea

    Attempting a pb without spotters is also not a good idea

    What's done is done, put it from your mind, soldier on and don't make the same mistakes again

    think that was bad, i was doing calf raise with the bar on top of my back and the step i was standing on fliped over ,i nearly had a seirous accent only for the catch to latch on to the rack at the bottom , my arse was sittng on the floor and my knees where touching my chin lol, i felt like a right d1ck  , but got back up and finished my workout

    Think most of us have probably had an epic fail at one time. I was shoulder pressing, went for a PB, totally forgot my form and clipped my chin on the way up. Knocked two front teeth loose!

    Still, forgot about it and finished my workout all the same.

    clipped my chin on the way up

    done that a few times, most times when going for a pb and your really going for it (110% effort straight into your chin)

    My bar on the shoulder press would be moving too slow to hurt me lol
