      Read this today in the metro. Moral of the story, don't bench alone when you're drunk.

      [ctrl]+scroll up

      I'm glad they didn't mention the exact weight. I have nearly died a few times benching (not drunk) at home and I was worried I'd be found dead from lifting girly weights. I said to my friends that if it happened, could they come over and stack on some more weight so at least I can die with some honour.

      This is a rather sad story.

      It begs the question of what happened though? Obviously trying to lift weights whilst intoxicated is rather foolish - but failing a bench press does not result in death in all but the most extreme cases, certainly not free weight.

      I just wonder if there is more than meets the eye on this one.

      Either way, needless loss of life.

      It's the most common way of dying in the gym. The bar comes down over your neck, or crushes your chest - you're dead.

      I've failed a few - I've had some bruised ribs, a sore chest. The bar falls to one side and I climb out. At the British Bench Championships on Sat a lad I knew dropped 300kg on his chest. He is fine.

      The recent death I remember was in a smith - where you are stuck and the bar can only go down and not sideways like a free bar can.
