My Squat Fail

#1 Postby Crystal » Wed Aug 06, 2014 3:38 pm

Hey, its good to know how to fail and not be afraid of it! Sadly proud of this super fail. Just straight-up lost my balance at the top and down I went! :) . This was at the Austin Simple Fit Open 26 July 2014.

Wow. Were you OK? That looked like it could have seriously injured you. Hope you were all right.

Glad you weren't hurt!! We saw that from back behind the other platform - fortunately you were walking and laughing soon after!

Damn, I thought you had uploaded the wrong clip as you got completely to the top and everything looked great !!

Glad you are okay though, that's could have gone quite badly. I've seen people blowing their kneecaps out so you were really lucky. Strong lifting though regardless !!
